76 Possible Causes for Hand Tremor, Progressive Action Tremor

  • Parkinson's Disease

    […] reduction in speed and amplitude of repetitive actions) and at least one of the following: (i) muscular rigidity, (ii) 4–6 Hz rest tremor and (iii) postural instability not[] Treating the patients with hand tremors is clinically difficult, because a wide range of disorders can result in hand tremors.[] (hand, leg or jaw; low frequency [4–5 Hz], asymmetric, disappears with action) - Excellent response to levodopa (70%–100%) - Progressive disorder - Severe levodopa-induced[]

  • Familial Tremor

    High, fast frequency which may decrease as the disease progresses. Low, slow frequency (4 to 6Hz). Action tremor.[] Enhanced Physiologic Tremor This is an action tremor similar to the essential tremor, best seen when the hands are outstretched and fingers spread apart.[] , hand tremors occur when your hands are at rest.[]

  • Essential Tremor

    Characterised by a progressive tremor of the upper extremities, present in posture and action, without other neurological signs or symptoms.[] In addition to the potentially debilitating hand tremor, there can be other neuropsychiatric manifestations, including difficulty walking and various levels of cognitive impairment[] Essential tremor is a slowly progressive disease that causes shaking while assuming static positions (postural tremor) and during movements (action tremor).[]

  • Friedreich Ataxia

    […] and intention tremors can develop as the disease progresses Progressive motor weakness of the lower limbs occurs, leading to inability to walk.[] They also have specially built tables for wheelchair users, and, since my hand tremors worsened, they have got me a laptop computer.[] Progression of the condition results in extremity and trunk involvement. With ataxia of the arms, action and intention tremors occur.[]

  • Primary Orthostatic Tremor

    Termed “cerebellar postural tremor,” it is prominent with both action and posture. 4 In its most severe form, cerebellar postural tremor has a frequency of 2.5 to 4 Hz and[] Essential tremor mainly involves the hands, head, and voice.[] […] supranuclear palsy (n   1), restless leg syndrome (n   1), multifocal action tremor (n   2), pathological proven dementia with Lewy bodies (n   1), and focal dystonia of[]

  • Spinocerebellar Ataxia Type 12

    SCA12 is a late-onset, autosomal dominant, slowly progressive disorder. Action tremor is the usual presenting sign.[] , T tremor; HT hand tremor, GA gait ataxia;M Male; na not available; Sp speech impairment; WMH white matter hyperintensities; presence of that feature; absence of that feature[] […] of hands (symmetric or asymmetric) as a symptom at onset and late development of gait ataxia, speech impairment, and head tremor, which may also be dystonic and precede hand[]

  • Benign Adult Familial Myoclonic Epilepsy

    Usually, myoclonic tremor is the presenting symptom, characterized by tremulous finger movements and myoclonic jerks of the limbs increased by action and posture.[] Overview Benign adult familial myoclonic epilepsy is an inherited epileptic syndrome characterized by cortical hand tremors , myoclonic jerks, and rare convulsive seizures[] ) Cortical tremor is a form of rhythmic myoclonus, presenting as postural or action tremor in some patients with progressive myoclonus epilepsy (PME), 76, 77 in Angelman syndrome[]

  • Ataxic Cerebral Palsy

    This tremor becomes more pronounced as the movement progresses, ultimately making the desired action difficult to complete.[] (tremors) walking on tip-toes The severity of symptoms varies significantly from child to child.[] The most common manifestation of ataxic cerebral palsy is intention (action) tremor, especially when carrying out precise movements, like holding a pen or pencil for writing[]

  • X-linked Distal Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 3

    Spinocerebellar ataxia type 12 (SCA12) is an autosomal dominant disorder characterized by action tremor of the upper extremities progressing to ataxia and other cerebellar[] Muscle cramps, facial fasciculations, hand tremor. Associated with type 2 diabetes and infertility.[] tremor, fasciculation of tongue and joint laxity III - onset 2 years of age to adulthood, able to walk, difficulty with other activities (running, jumping), weakness can[]

  • Neuronal Intranuclear Inclusion Disease

    He was found to have significant action and sustention tremor, bilateral lower leg weakness (tibialis anterior), decreased deep tendon reflexes and pes planus.[] A 73-year-old woman presented with slowly progressive tremor in both hands. The resting tremor was enhanced by cognitive activity and walking.[] Despite continued neurological progression, extensive clinical evaluation over the next year demonstrated limited abnormalities.[]
