331 Possible Causes for Guillain-Barré Syndrome, Muscle Twitch

  • Peripheral Neuropathy

    syndrome.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] On clinical examination, muscle twitches of fingers of both hands, as well as the abductor halluces and the dorsal interossei muscles of the right foot were observed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Lumbar puncture and cerebrospinal fluid analysis may be helpful in the diagnosis of Guillain-Barré syndrome and chronic inflammatory demyelinating neuropathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Paraneoplastic Syndrome

    Guillain-Barré syndrome, another ascending peripheral neuropathy, is a rare finding in the general population and probably more common in patients with Hodgkin lymphoma.[merckmanuals.com] Accordingly, this syndrome is associated with muscle weakness, muscle wasting, and muscle twitching.[brighamandwomens.org] Although the frequency of cancer in patients with Guillain-Barré syndrome is not increased, the association between this neuropathy and HL is well established. 92 Patients[bloodjournal.org]

  • Motor Neuron Disease

    Myasthenia gravis presenting like guillain-barré syndrome. Case Rep Neurol. 2012 Sep;4(3):137-43. doi: 10.1159/000342448. Epub 2012 Sep 12.[lifeinthefastlane.com] A 69-year-old man with long-standing depression and failing memory presented with muscle twitches of 8 months' duration.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] twitching Later on, people with MND: have little or no movement have trouble talking, breathing and swallowing A few people with MND develop a type of dementia .[healthdirect.gov.au]

  • Poliomyelitis

    It has superficial similarities to a motor axonal variant of Guillain-Barré syndrome but can be distinguished by clinical, cerebrospinal fluid, and, perhaps specifically,[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] and/or joints Increased muscle weakness/muscle pain Decrease in muscle mass (muscle atrophy) Increasing joint instability/joint deformities Cramping Muscle twitching Changes[ottobockus.com] They also demonstrated there is a fiber type transformation from type II (fast twitch, glycolytic) fibers to type I (slow twitch, oxidative) fibers based on these findings[web.archive.org]

  • Rabies

Asbury AK, Cornblath DR.[doi.org] The paralysis begins in the bitten limb in many cases, spreads rapidly and symmetrically and may be misdiagnosed as Guillain-Barré syndrome.[patient.info] Assessment of current diagnostic criteria for Guillain-Barre syndrome. Ann Neurol. 1990;27(Suppl):S21–4. CrossRef PubMed Google Scholar 16.[doi.org]

  • Multifocal Motor Neuropathy

    OBJECTIVE: Multifocal motor neuropathy (MMN) and the Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) are immune-mediated motor neuropathies with antibodies against the ganglioside GM1.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Usually beginning in one or both hands, MMN is characterized by weakness, muscle atrophy, cramping, and often profuse fasciculations (muscle twitching).[en.wikipedia.org] The clinical picture and course of time of the illness allowed the diagnosis of a Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Neuropathy

    Unfortunately, none of these tests can diagnose Guillain-Barré syndrome.[medbroadcast.com] They may also suffer from cramps, muscle twitching, muscle and bone loss, and changes in the skin, hair and nails.[livescience.com] […] to lack of activity muscle twitching and cramps.[diabetes.org.uk]

  • Polyneuropathy

    Postinfective polyneuritis - eg, Guillain-Barré syndrome. Sarcoidosis.[patient.info] Some of the common symptoms of Polyneuropathy are: Numbness of the extremities Hypersensitivity Tingling or burning sensation Muscle pain and weakness Involuntary muscle twitching[epainassist.com] An exam may show: Decreased feeling (may affect touch, pain, vibration, or position sensation) Diminished reflexes (most commonly the ankle) Muscle atrophy Muscle twitches[medlineplus.gov]

  • Acute Transverse Myelitis

    Acute transverse myelitis and Guillain-Barré syndrome have been reported rarely with CSD.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Both acute transverse myelitis (ATM) and Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) occur as rare associations with mumps viraemia but to our knowledge, concurrent ATM and GBS related[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Guillain-Barré syndrome can be distinguished because it does not localize to a specific spinal segment. Diagnosis requires MRI and CSF analysis.[merckmanuals.com]

  • Peripheral Motor Neuropathy

    Neuropathies with a relapsing and remitting course include Guillain-Barré syndrome.[aafp.org] Motor neuropathy symptoms may include: Muscle weakness Cramps Muscle twitching Loss of muscle and bone Changes in skin, hair, or nails Sensory neuropathy symptoms may include[columbianeurology.org] […] weakness or loss of muscle control trouble with balance and coordination muscle twitching, cramping, or spasms difficulty walking or moving limbs Symptoms of autonomic neuropathy[healthline.com]
