1,279 Possible Causes for Fainting Spells, Mutation in the CALM2 Gene, Rhythmic Slowing Parietal Bilaterally

  • 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]

  • Hyponatremia

    OBJECTIVES: To assess symptoms and characteristics of hyponatremia, the most common electrolyte disturbance in hospitalized individuals and a condition that is associated with substantial morbidity and mortality. DESIGN: Prospective observational multicenter study. SETTING: Two Swiss academic centers. PARTICIPANTS:[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Traumatic Brain Injury

    Pediatric head injuries are common and may present with varying degrees of altered mental status in children. The approach to evaluation, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of further injury is important in achieving good health outcomes after a head injury. In this article, we review the pathophysiology,[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Stroke

    BACKGROUND: Impaired gait function after stroke contributes strongly to overall patient disability. Recently, sleep disturbance was reported to negatively affect functional recovery after stroke. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to identify the impact of sleep disturbance on balance and gait function in stroke[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • 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]
