22 Possible Causes for Hyperactive Deep Tendon Reflexes, Magnesium Decreased

  • Hypomagnesemia

    deep tendon reflexes Chvostek's and Trousseau's signs Nystagmus Ataxia Cardiac arrhythmia Diagnostic Test Results-Laboratory Serum magnesium level is less than 1.5 mEq/L.[] Magnesium deficiency also results in decreased release of parathyroid hormone leading to hypocalcemia.[] deep tendon reflexes Chvostek's and Trousseau's signs Nystagmus Ataxia Cardiac arrhythmia Hypomagnesemia Diagnostic Test Results-Laboratory Serum magnesium level is less[]

  • Hypocalcemia

    Manifestations include hyperactive deep tendon reflexes, chvostek's sign, muscle and abdominal cramps, and carpopedal spasm.[] Both Pearson and partial correlation tests indicated there was indeed significant relation between calcium and magnesium.[] Manifestations include hyperactive deep tendon reflexes, Chvostek's sign, muscle and abdominal cramps, and carpopedal spasm.[]

  • Hypermagnesemia

    Signs and symptoms include muscle tremors and weakness, athetoid movements (continuous, slow, involuntary twisting/writhing movements), ataxia, and hyperactive deep tendon[] But if I increases the magnesium or decreased the calcium, the symptoms would switch again. (ir dry skin, bone ache, but joints would improve).[] Physical examination revealed 3/5 muscle strength in the right extremities and 4-/5 in the left extremities with diffusely hyporeflexic deep tendon reflexes.[]

  • Electrolyte Imbalance

    deep tendon reflexes.[] .  Assessment findings: on lab analysis, serum phosphate level is less than 2.5 mg/L Serum magnesium may be decreased due to increased urinary excretion of magnesium X-ray[] […] intake (magnesium-containing antacids and laxatives, IV magnesium replacement), decreased kidney excretion of magnesium resulting from kidney disease - Symptoms: bradycardia[]

  • Electrolytes Abnormal

    deep tendon reflexes, dysrhythmias, mood changes, confusion, reduced motility with anorexia, nausea, constipation and distention.[] Definition Renal failure is often complicated by elevations in potassium, phosphate, and magnesium and decreases in sodium and calcium.[] A decrease in serum magnesium is also believed to be arrhythmogenic, and magnesium depletion is thought to play a role in many of the arrhythmias associated with hypopotassemia[]

  • Acid-Base Imbalance

    The signs and symptoms are numbness, tingling of fingers, toes, and circumoral region, positive Trousseau’s sign and Chvostek’s sign, seizures, hyperactive deep tendon reflexes[] deep tendon reflexes. tetany of muscle groups.[] Tetany D: Decreased levels of calcium and magnesium leads to tetany. A: Anorexia is a manifestation of hypomagnesemia while nausea is a sign of hypercalcemia.[]

  • Neonatal Hypotonia

    deep tendon reflexes are typical findings in these babies.[] Maternal drugs such as magnesium sulfate given to decrease the risk of seizures, pain medications and spinal anesthesia can also cause temporary hypotonia.[] . • Central hypotonia is more likely to be noted axially with normal strength and hyperactive to normal deep tendon reflexes. • Other clues to central hypotonia include dysmorphic[]

  • Hyperparathyroidism

    deep tendon reflexes [1] Personality changes [1] Muscle weakness and atrophy [1] Gout [1] Myalgia [1] Abdominal pain [1] Constipation [1] Peptic ulcers [1] Renal colic [1[] Dietary magnesium restriction causes decreased bone magnesium content ( 97 ).[] […] problems [2] Pancreatitis [2] Bone decalcification (hypercalcemia) [2] Psychotic paranoia [2] Frequent complaints of illness with no apparent cause [3] Paresthesias [1] Hyperactive[]

  • Eclampsia

    The nurse is alert to persistently and extremely high blood pressure and to increasingly hyperactive deep-tendon reflexes, or clonus.[] Magnesium sulphate decreases maternal blood pressure but not uterine blood flow during epidural anaesthesia in gravid ewes.[] As plasma magnesium rises above 4 mEq/L, the deep tendon reflexes are first decreased and then disappear as the plasma level approaches 10 mEq/L.[]

  • Muscular Fasciculation

    Deep tendon reflexes in the 4 limbs were asymmetrical that left limbs were hyperactive and right limbs brisk. Hoffman’s reflexes and patellar clonus were negative.[] The upper dose of magnesium can cause loose bowels; if that happens, just decrease your magnesium intake.[] Keep in mind that for many people, 500 mg of magnesium can cause loose bowels (taking it with calcium decreases this susceptibility).[]
