96 Possible Causes for Facial Muscle Weakness and Progressive Atrophy, Muscle Cramp, Muscular Atrophy

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    The patients were a 54-year-old man with progressive muscular atrophy who underwent removal of internal fixators in the arm and leg, and a 66-year-old woman with amyotrophic[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Cramps are painful, involuntary muscle contractions.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Symptoms include pharyngeal muscle weakness (involved with swallowing), weak jaw and facial muscles, progressive loss of speech, and tongue muscle atrophy.[web.archive.org]

  • Multifocal Motor Neuropathy

    Abstract Multifocal motor neuropathy (MMN) and progressive muscular atrophy (PMA) are associated with IgM monoclonal gammopathy or the presence IgM anti-GM1-antibodies.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Signs and symptoms of MMN include weakness in the hands and lower arms; muscle cramping; involuntary muscle contractions or twitching; and wasting of the involved muscles.[medicinenet.com] In the first patient the symptoms were slowly progressive with bulbar muscle impairment, generalized weakness, muscular atrophy with cramps and fasciculations.[moh-it.pure.elsevier.com]

  • Myotonic Dystrophy

    Neuromuscular disorders like myotonic dystrophy (dystrophia myotonica or Steinert's disease) and spinal muscular atrophy are associated with perioperative complications related[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Pregnancy is an aggravating factor for pain, myotonia and muscle cramps. Affected subjects often complain of sweaty palms.[dystrophiemyotonique.chuq.qc.ca] Clinical Presentation: Variable, progressive disability; facial and distal limb muscle weakness with myotonia; cataracts; cardiac conduction defects; diabetes mellitus; and[ajnr.org]
