67 Possible Causes for Facial Muscle Weakness and Progressive Atrophy, Muscle Twitch, Muscular Atrophy

  • Progressive Muscular Atrophy

    The name "spinal muscular atrophy" is ambiguous as it refers to any of various spinal muscular atrophies, including the autosomal recessive spinal muscular atrophy caused[en.wikipedia.org] Symptoms include pharyngeal muscle weakness (involved with swallowing), weak jaw and facial muscles, progressive loss of speech, and tongue muscle atrophy.[web.archive.org] This then leads to fasciculations (muscle twitches), progressively worsening muscle weakness, and a loss of muscle mass and weight.[mndcentre.org.uk]

  • Motor Neuron Disease

    Some MNDs, such as ALS and some forms of spinal muscular atrophy, are fatal.[ninds.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] A 69-year-old man with long-standing depression and failing memory presented with muscle twitches of 8 months' duration.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • 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] Symptoms include pharyngeal muscle weakness (involved with swallowing), weak jaw and facial muscles, progressive loss of speech, and tongue muscle atrophy.[web.archive.org] twitching for 3 years.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • 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] 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] Usually beginning in one or both hands, MMN is characterized by weakness, muscle atrophy, cramping, and often profuse fasciculations (muscle twitching).[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Upper Motor Neuron Disease

    atrophy(PMA), Progressive bulbar palsy(PBP), MEPs were recorded from abductor pollicis brevis and abductor hallucis.[e-acn.org] Symptoms include pharyngeal muscle weakness (muscles that are involved in swallowing), weak facial muscles, progressive loss of speech, and tongue muscle atrophy.[advancedpsy.com] Lower motor neuron disease causes weakness, loss of muscle ("atrophy") and muscle twitching ("fasciculations").[neurology.emory.edu]

  • Spinal and Bulbar Muscular Atrophy

    KEYWORDS: CAG/polyglutamine expansion; androgen receptor; neuromuscular disease; spinal and bulbar muscular atrophy; testosterone[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract Spinal and bulbar muscular atrophy (SBMA) is the first member identified among polyglutamine diseases characterized by slowly progressive muscle weakness and atrophy[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Early symptoms include tremor of the outstretched hands, muscle cramps with exertion, and fasciculations (fleeting muscle twitches visible under the skin).[ninds.nih.gov]

  • Adult Spinal Muscular Atrophy

    […] spinal muscular atrophy and juvenile asymmetric segmental spinal muscular atrophy.[symptoma.com] Spinal muscular atrophy is characterised by slowly progressive muscle weakness and atrophy of the limb muscles associated with motor neurone loss in the spinal cord.[patient.info] The disorder slowly progressed to include cramps and muscle twitches.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 3

    Spinal muscular atrophies (SMAs) are neurodegenerative disorders caused by mutations in the survival motor neuron 1 (SMN1) gene.[symptoma.com] Spinal muscular atrophy is characterised by slowly progressive muscle weakness and atrophy of the limb muscles associated with motor neurone loss in the spinal cord.[patient.info] […] facial twitching Atrophic muscle changes Muscle twitching Sensory neuropathies Difficulty sitting up or walking or crawling (infants ) Thin muscle mass Missing tendon reflexes[stemcellthailand.org]

  • Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 1

    atrophy type 1 with paradoxical breathing were placed on high-span PIP PEEP when sleeping from the point of diagnosis of spinal muscular atrophy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We present a baby with spinal muscular atrophy type 1, an inherited disorder causing progressive weakness, leading to complete paralysis of respiratory, facial and limb muscles[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Symptoms include tremors of the hands, muscle cramps, limb weakness, and twitching.[healthline.com]
