179 Possible Causes for Hyperreflexia, Muscle Twitch, Myelopathy

  • Myelopathy

    Cause: Various factors give rise to myelopathy.[symptoma.com] Clinical hyperreflexia was tested at the MCP joint, using a six-axis load cell.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Symptoms and Signs Cord compression commonly causes gradual spastic paresis, paresthesias, or both in the hands and feet and may cause hyperreflexia.[merckmanuals.com]

  • Subacute Transverse Myelitis

    Myelopathy work-up Acute intramedullary myelopathy Toxic myelopathy : Can occur hours after intranasal insufflation of heroin.[neuroweb.us] An areflexic cystometrogram tended to change to a low compliance bladder, followed by detrusor hyperreflexia or a normal cystometrogram.[nature.com] Deep tendon reflexes were generalized hyperreflexia. No ankle clonus was observed. Babinski’s sign was the plantar response. The anal sphincter tone was intact.[karger.com]

  • Acute Transverse Myelitis

    Finally, we suggest an algorithm for the diagnosis and management of acute myelopathies.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Flaccid weakness gradually changes to pyramidal tract signs, with hyperreflexia, clonus, and extensor responses.[pediatricneurologybriefs.com] Sx: leg weakness, sphincter dysfunction, abnormal DTRs [acutely may be absent, but hyperreflexia the rule].[hopkinsguides.com]

  • Myelitis

    INTRODUCTION: Spondylotic myelopathy is the commonest cause of nontraumatic myelopathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Examination reveals moderate paraparesis with hyperreflexia, a left extensor plantar response, impaired vibratory and proprioceptive sensation, and a sensory level at T6.[nejm.org] Sx: leg weakness, sphincter dysfunction, abnormal DTRs [acutely may be absent, but hyperreflexia the rule].[hopkinsguides.com]

  • Spinal Cord Infarction

    BACKGROUND: Surfer’s myelopathy is a rare, acute, atraumatic myelopathy that occurs in novice surfers.[neurosurgerycns.wordpress.com] Hyperreflexia may follow initial symptoms, and a positive Babinski reflex may be elicited.[symptoma.com] Initially areflexia is present due to spinal shock but, hyperreflexia and spasticity appear later The most common form is anterior spinal artery syndrome.[sci-recovery.org]

  • Spinal Cord Lesion

    CONCLUSION: Spinal form CTX should be considered in the differential diagnosis of cryptogenic myelopathy, especially in patients with a long spinal cord lesion, as treatment[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract Autonomic hyperreflexia is a serious peripartum complication associated with spinal cord lesions.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] MRI is useful in front of myelopathy, showing an enlargement or T2-hyperintense lesion of the posterior funiculus.[panafrican-med-journal.com]

  • Spinal Cord Injury

    BACKGROUND: Subacute posttraumatic ascending myelopathy (SPAM) is a rare event that occurs after spinal cord trauma or ischemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Spasticity is characterized as hyperreflexia and hypertonicity as a result of damage to the supraspinal tracts in the aftermath of SCI.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This eventually leads to muscle weakening, twitching, and an inability to move the arms, legs, and body. The condition slowly gets worse.[neuralstem.com]

  • Stiff-Person Syndrome

    Key Words Muscle rigidity muscle spasm myelopathy with rigidity or spasms myelitis This is a preview of subscription content, log in to check access.[link.springer.com] SYMPTOMS The most common signs are: - hyperreflexia reflexive integrity can be assessed via deep tendon reflexes (as well as resistance to passive stretch), grading it by[flipper.diff.org] RESULTS: The patient presented with recurrent episodes of vertigo with a pure peripheral pattern and with concomitant episodes of burning muscle pain, muscle twitching, weight[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Upper Motor Neuron Disease

    myelopathy, human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) myelopathy, human T-lymphotropic virus type 1 (HTLV-1) myelopathy, Lyme disease, syphilis, or adrenomyeloneuropathy.[clinicalgate.com] No spasticity or hyperreflexia.[brainscape.com] Lower motor neuron disease causes weakness, loss of muscle ("atrophy") and muscle twitching ("fasciculations").[neurology.emory.edu]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    Abstract We herein report a case of Human T-lymphotropic virus type-I (HTLV-I)-associated myelopathy with bulbar palsy-type amyotrophic lateral sclerosis-like symptoms.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] remains normal Physical exam neck ptosis (neck drop) due to neck extensor weakness manual muscle testing elicits muscle cramping upper motor neuron (UMN) signs spasticity hyperreflexia[orthobullets.com] twitching for 3 years.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
