1,947 Possible Causes for Hyperreflexia

  • Hyperventilation

    Hyperventilation occurs when the rate or tidal volume of breathing eliminates more carbon dioxide than the body can produce. This leads to hypocapnia, a reduced concentration of carbon dioxide dissolved in the blood. The body normally attempts to compensate for this homeostatically but if this fails or is[…][en.wikipedia.org]

  • Hypoglycemia

    An 84-year-old Japanese woman with metastatic insulinoma suffered from frequent hypoglycemic events. Continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) confirmed severe and frequent symptomatic/asymptomatic hypoglycemia. After the initiation of everolimus treatment, the hypoglycemic events were rapidly eliminated. CGM revealed[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acute Hyperventilation

    Abstract In 27 comatose patients with acute head injury, 45 paired studies of regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) were performed before and after hyperventilation. In total 676 regions were studied, and rCBF was calculated as initial slope index using the intracarotid washout technique of 133 Xe. The tests were[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acute Amphetamine Intoxication

    Symptoms Manifestations of acute overdosage with amphetamines include restlessness, tremor, hyperreflexia, rapid respiration, confusion, assaultiveness, hallucinations, panic[erowid.org] In patient [ 3 ] there was the presence of generalized hyperactivity, hypertonia and hyperreflexia.[omicsonline.org] They are usually brief and self-limited.6 Tremor, hyperreflexia, choreoathetoid movements, and bruxism (tooth grinding) are common and are thought to arise from alteration[calsprogram.org]

  • Psychogenic Hyperventilation

  • Alzheimer Disease

    Alzheimer's disease (AD) related genes have been elucidated by advanced genetic techniques. Familial autosomal dominant AD genes founded by linkage analyses are APP, PSEN1, PSEN2, ABCA7, and SORL1. Genome-wide association studies have found risk genes such as ABCA7, BIN1, CASS4, CD33, CD2AP, CELF1, CLU, CR1, DSG2,[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
