610 Possible Causes for Facial Muscle Weakness and Progressive Atrophy, Grip Strength Decreased, Quadriceps Muscle Weakness

  • Motor Neuron Disease

    Symptoms include pharyngeal muscle weakness (involved with swallowing), weak jaw and facial muscles, progressive loss of speech, and tongue muscle atrophy.[web.archive.org] […] of deep finger flexors and the quadriceps femoris with typical rimmed vacuoles on muscle biopsy Postpolio syndrome (PPS) Monomeric amyotrophy (also known as Hirayama disease[emedicine.medscape.com] Progressive bulbar palsy, also called progressive bulbar atrophy, involves the brain stem—the bulb-shaped region containing lower motor neurons needed for swallowing, speaking[web.archive.org]

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

    There was a significant (t10 5.45, P 0.001) 37% decrease in grip strength immediately following surgery.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Post-operatively the patient is likely to experience scar tenderness and decreased grip strength for a few months and may require several weeks off work.[apps.nhslothian.scot] As symptoms worsen, people might feel tingling during the day, and decreased grip strength may make it difficult to form a fist, grasp small objects, or perform other manual[web.archive.org]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    Prior animal studies have shown that silencing SOD1 led to preservation of grip strength and a delay in the onset of motor function deficits [ 125, 126 ].[doi.org] In cranial nerves, common symptoms are atrophy of facial muscles and progressive bulbar palsy (PBP).[flexikon.doccheck.com] Lightweight ankle-foot orthoses can be provided to minimize foot drop and stabilize weak quadriceps muscles to prevent falls. [6] The physical therapist should also emphasize[emedicine.com]

  • Myotonic Dystrophy

    Clinical Presentation: Variable, progressive disability; facial and distal limb muscle weakness with myotonia; cataracts; cardiac conduction defects; diabetes mellitus; and[ajnr.org] Becker muscular dystrophy is clinically characterized by the following: Progressive symmetric muscle weakness and atrophy with calf hypertrophy In some cases quadriceps femoris[centogene.com] The clinical course led progressively to major disability with severe proximal weakness and atrophy and, later on, distal weakness, atrophy and neck extensor weakness responsible[doi.org]

  • Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy

    The forearms may become mildly atrophic with decrease in grip strength; the small muscles of the hands are spared.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] LGMD 2M Age 10-50 There is asymmetric wasting of leg muscle (quadriceps femoris). LGMD 2N (POMT2) Childhood (?)

    Respiratory muscle weakness that produces acute respiratory failure is a true neuromuscular emergency, and immediate intubation may be necessary.[emedicine.medscape.com] In the lower extremities, commonly involved muscles include hip flexors, quadriceps, and hamstrings, with involvement of foot dorsiflexors or plantar flexors less common.[emedicine.medscape.com]
