1,270 Possible Causes for Fainting Spells, Mutation in the CALM2 Gene

  • Catecholaminergic Polymorphic Ventricular Tachycardia Type 2

    For individuals who have problems with chronic fainting spells, therapy should focus on recognizing the triggers and learning techniques to keep from fainting.[en.wikipedia.org] […] that have been discovered and only represent a small percentage of CPVT cases are TRDN (encoding triadin) and CALM1 (encoding calmodulin). 5,6 Mutations in the CALM2 gene[doi.org] Genetic variants of CPVT include RyR2, CASQ2, CALM2, TRD, and possibly KCNJ2 and ANK2 gene mutations.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Catecholaminergic Polymorphic Ventricular Tachycardia

    Possible complications include: Inability of the heart to pump enough blood (heart failure) Frequent fainting spells or unconsciousness Sudden death caused by cardiac arrest[mayoclinic.org] RYR2, CASQ2, KCNJ2 , ANK2, CALM1, CALM2, TRDN, SCN5A* Other Panels that Include this Diagnosis Notes on Genes: Priority Genes: These genes include 70% of the mutations that[admerahealth.com] About 80% of people who are untreated will experience fainting spells.[myresults.org]

  • 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]

  • Long QT Syndrome 10

    However, some patients may complain of a fluttering or palpitation in the chest before the fainting spell. Fainting spells may last for a minute or two.[news-medical.net] This prompted candidate-gene screening in a cohort of 82 LQTS genotype-negative patients. Two more patients were carriers of either CALM1 or CALM2 mutations.[smw.ch] Typical symptoms include fainting spells during exercise or as a response to fear or surprise. Fainting may also occur during sleep or arousal from sleep.[news-medical.net]

  • Long QT Syndrome

    These fainting spells might happen when you're excited, angry, scared or during exercise.[mayoclinic.org] RESULTS: A novel de novo CALM2 mutation (D132H) was discovered by candidate gene screening in a male infant with prenatal bradycardia born to healthy parents.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] LQT15LQT15 is caused by heterozygous mutations in the CALM2 (Calmodulin 2) gene (114182) on chromosome 2p21.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Insect Bite

    Insect bites may be inflicted by mosquitos, fleas, bugs, lice and a plethora of other species pertaining to distinct families of the order insects. While they are of little medical interest in the vast majority of cases, immunocompromised or allergic patients may suffer from severe reactions to an insect bite. Most[…][symptoma.com]

  • Hyperventilation

    One must rely solely on a very careful history and elicit time of onset and place to get a possible lead if it is a patient complaining of having had “fainting spells,” “heart[aafp.org] ‘Patients can reproduce these spells by hyperventilating in a controlled environment.’[en.oxforddictionaries.com] ‘So does that mean you become light headed and silly, or faint, as you would if you hyperventilated at sea level?’[en.oxforddictionaries.com]

  • 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]

  • Temporomandibular Joint Disorder

    Temporomandibular Joint disorder (TMD) is a dysfunction of masticatory muscles and the joints that connect the mandible (lower jaw) to the skull. The foremost symptom of TMD is pain. Pain in TMD usually occurs in adjacent areas near the tragus or elsewhere on the face rather than in the joint itself. Symptoms[…][symptoma.com]
