77 Possible Causes for Hoarseness, Steppage Gait, Vitamin B12 Deficiency

  • Chronic Alcoholism

    Folic acid and vitamins B6 and B12 deficiency may lead to hyperhomocysteinemia, as they participate in its metabolism.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Chronic alcoholism is often associated with malnutrition and nutritional and vitamin deficiencies, including B12, B1 (thiamin), folate and other B vitamins.[foundationforpn.org] ., Leber's hereditary optic neuropathy), nutritional deficiencies (e.g., vitamin B9 [folic acid] and vitamin B12 [cobalamin] deficiencies), and toxic conditions (e.g., those[scielo.br]

  • Neuropathy

    (usually affects the feet first, then the arms and hands) Other symptoms that can occur with CIDP include: Abnormal or uncoordinated movement Problems breathing Fatigue Hoarseness[medlineplus.gov] Because of weakness in the foot and ankle, the leg often has to be lifted in exaggerated fashion to clear the floor, resulting in a so-called steppage gait.[vermontspineworks.com] For example, vitamin supplements in Vitamin B12 and folate deficiency.[symptoma.com]

  • Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease

    […] daughters of consanguineous parents, with onset of symptoms within the first two years of life, developing severe functional impairment, without evidence of dysmorphic features, hoarseness[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The clinical similarities between CMT and FRDA include a symmetrical neuropathy (axonal in FRDA), steppage gait, and eventually scoliosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Acquired neuropathies - eg, related to alcohol, vitamin B12 deficiency, thyroid disease, diabetes mellitus, and infection ( HIV, leprosy, syphilis ). Vasculitis.[patient.info]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    […] easily, drooling, or gagging Head drop due to weakness of the neck muscles Speech problems, such as a slow or abnormal speech pattern (slurring of words) Voice changes, hoarseness[nlm.nih.gov] Further, muscle imbalance and compensatory gait patterns (e.g., steppage, hip hiking) can trigger musculoskeletal pain such as low back pain and can worsen fatigue.[doi.org] Since vitamin B12 deficiency is common in my family, with many members getting regular shots because their intrinsic factor appears to be compromised, it may be worthwhile[celiac.com]

  • Primary Lateral Sclerosis

    […] your legs Tripping, difficulty with balance and clumsiness as the leg muscles weaken Weakness and stiffness progressing to your trunk, then your arms, hands, tongue and jaw Hoarseness[mayoclinic.org] His gait was notable for a very mild reduction of the left arm swing and a left steppage gait. The laboratory investigations are detailed in table 1.[karger.com] B12 deficiency (usually a problem of absorption, not diet), and virus caused diseases.[healthboards.com]

  • Distal Hereditary Motor Neuropathy Type 5

    […] dysmyelination, Waardenburg syndrome and Hirschsprung disease; PN peripheral neuropathy (for genes not specified in another class); PNMHH peripheral neuropathy, myopathy, hoarseness[tidsskriftet.no] Proprioceptive sensory loss can cause sensory ataxia and a steppage gait. Tasks involving fine motor control of the hands may also become progressively more difficult.[patient.info] gait.[journals.plos.org]

  • Peripheral Motor Neuropathy

    […] cranial problem) Transient cortical blindness Oculomotor nerve dysfunction paralytic strabismus Jaw pain Facial palsy Sensorineural hearing loss Laryngeal nerve paresis (hoarseness[pedsoncologyeducation.com] A bilateral foot drop may result in a steppage gait in which the patient must lift the knees very high in order to clear the toes.[aafp.org] Neuropathy due to vitamin B12 deficiency can be reversed with vitamin B12 supplementation.[precisionhealth.com.au]

  • Distal Hereditary Motor Neuropathy Type 1

    […] dysmyelination, Waardenburg syndrome and Hirschsprung disease; PN peripheral neuropathy (for genes not specified in another class); PNMHH peripheral neuropathy, myopathy, hoarseness[tidsskriftet.no] Onset is typically in the first decade with leg are-flexia, gait disorder (toe walking or steppage gait), foot muscle atrophy or pes cavus, occasionally short Achilles tendons[academlib.com] Acquired neuropathies - eg, related to alcohol, vitamin B12 deficiency, thyroid disease, diabetes mellitus, and infection ( HIV, leprosy, syphilis ). Vasculitis.[patient.info]

  • Young Adult-Onset Distal Hereditary Motor Neuropathy

    Following adolescence, the voice of the patient became hoarse.[spandidos-publications.com] Patients had symmetric progressive weakness and atrophy of the lower limb muscles, resulting in foot drop and steppage gait.[emedicine.medscape.com] In the United States, the most common single deficiency is in vitamin B12 (secondary to poor absorption of Vitamin B12).[dartmouth.edu]

  • Hereditary Motor and Sensory Neuropathy

    Autosomal dominant Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 2N Autosomal dominant intermediate Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type E Autosomal recessive Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease with hoarseness[icdlist.com] Onset is typically in the first decade with leg are-flexia, gait disorder (toe walking or steppage gait), foot muscle atrophy or pes cavus, occasionally short Achilles tendons[academlib.com] Acquired neuropathies - eg, related to alcohol, vitamin B12 deficiency, thyroid disease, diabetes mellitus, and infection ( HIV, leprosy, syphilis ).
