1,995 Possible Causes for Fainting Spells, Generalized Motor Seizure, Mutation in the CALM2 Gene

  • Ventricular Arrhythmia

    spells Sometimes there are no symptoms at all.[ucsfhealth.org] LQT15LQT15 is caused by heterozygous mutations in the CALM2 (Calmodulin 2) gene (114182) on chromosome 2p21.[en.wikipedia.org] […] fast or too slow can cause: Lightheadedness or dizziness Palpitations (skipping, fluttering or pounding in the chest) Fatigue Chest pressure or pain Shortness of breath Fainting[ucsfhealth.org]

  • Hypoglycemia

    We present a case of an 85-year-old man who presented to the endocrinology clinic with symptoms of "fainting spells after large meals."[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Because of the history of Billroth II surgery and the description of his fainting spells, a 5-hour glucose tolerance test was performed in the clinic using the foods that[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Vasovagal Syncope

    Vasovagal syncope is characterized by simple fainting spells.[rscdiagnosticservices.com] A blood test might also be done to look for conditions of the blood such as anemia which might be a cause to the fainting spell or dizziness you have.[gazettereview.com] Avoid fainting spells by recognising the symptoms before it happens.[mountelizabeth.com.sg]

  • Hyponatremia

    […] phenomena. [15] In a complex partial seizure a person may appear confused or dazed and can not respond to questions or direction.[en.wikipedia.org] Focal seizure may become generalized. [15] Jerking activity may start in a specific muscle group and spread to surrounding muscle groups—known as a Jacksonian march. [16][en.wikipedia.org] Focal seizures [ edit ] Focal seizures are often preceded by certain experiences, known as an aura. [12] These may include sensory, visual, psychic, autonomic, olfactory or motor[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Chronic Alcoholism

    The concept of "structural plasticity" has emerged as a potential mechanism in neurodegenerative and psychiatric diseases such as drug abuse, depression, and dementia. Chronic alcoholism is a progressive neurodegenerative disease while the person continues to abuse alcohol, though clinical and imaging studies show[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Stroke

    Objectives. The therapeutic window for intervention in acute cerebral ischemia is brief. Prehospital identification of acute stroke patients and paramedic administration of neuroprotective agents may soon become critical components of successful acute stroke treatment. This preliminary study sought to demonstrate[…][doi.org]

  • Acute Renal Failure

    Acute kidney injury (AKI), previously called acute renal failure (ARF), is an abrupt loss of kidney function that develops within 7 days.Its causes are numerous. Generally it occurs because of damage to the kidney tissue caused by decreased kidney blood flow (kidney ischemia) from any cause (e.g., low blood[…][en.wikipedia.org]

  • Absence Seizure

    Seizures of Generalized Onset Grand mal (generalized motor) Generalized seizures involve abnormal electrical activity in all of the cerebral cortex simultaneously.[dartmouth.edu] In infancy, some other causes of seizure-like spells include: breath-holding spells apnea gastroesophageal reflux (Sandifer’s syndrome) In later childhood: sleep disorders[thebarrow.org] Clinical Information Epilepsy characterized by absence seizures Generalized seizure that manifests in a form of a brief episode of impairment of consciousness with or without[icd9data.com]

  • Epilepsy

    Generalized seizures have both motor (movement) and nonmotor (absence) symptoms.[everydayhealth.com] A variety of seizure types were reported: generalized tonic-clonic seizures in 511 PWE (69.4%), absences in 15 (2.0%), focal motor seizures with full awareness in 7 (1.0%)[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] These types of seizures can be “convulsive” or “non-convulsive”, meaning that seizures can occur with generalized motor movements (convulsive) or without generalized motor[cerebralpalsyguide.com]
