25 Possible Causes for Facial Muscle Weakness and Progressive Atrophy, Hypersomnia

  • Muscular Dystrophy

    Abstract Facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy is an autosomal-dominant, slowly progressive myopathy that involves facial, shoulder, and upper arm muscles.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Apathy and hypersomnia are common features of myotonic dystrophy.[web.archive.org] Facial muscle atrophy and weakness leads to drooping of the lower lip, which has unfavorable functional and aesthetic outcomes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • 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] Progressive bulbar palsy , also called progressive bulbar atrophy, involves the brain stem—the bulb-shaped region containing lower motor neurons needed for swallowing, speaking[ninds.nih.gov] 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]

  • Myotonic Dystrophy

    Clinical Presentation: Variable, progressive disability; facial and distal limb muscle weakness with myotonia; cataracts; cardiac conduction defects; diabetes mellitus; and[ajnr.org] In the later stages of the disease, some people experience sleep apnea and hypersomnia. Women with myotonic dystrophy have an increased risk for pregnancy complications.[en.wikibooks.org] Apathy and hypersomnia are common features of myotonic dystrophy.[web.archive.org]
