205 Possible Causes for Hyperreflexia, Muscle Twitch, Respiratory Acidosis

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    […] 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[] twitching for 3 years.[] The upper motor signs include spasticity, hyperreflexia and weakness. The lower motor signs include amyotrophy, weakness and fasciculations.[]

  • Spinal Cord Injury

    That afternoon, he presented drowsiness and confusion, and arterial blood gas analysis (ABGA) demonstrated respiratory acidosis with CO2 retention; pH, 7.312; PaCO2, 62.8[] Spasticity is characterized as hyperreflexia and hypertonicity as a result of damage to the supraspinal tracts in the aftermath of SCI.[] This eventually leads to muscle weakening, twitching, and an inability to move the arms, legs, and body. The condition slowly gets worse.[]

  • Milk-Alkali Syndrome

    The association with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and respiratory acidosis may play a precipitating role.[] A man with severe hypercalcemia (22 mg/dl) secondary to ingestion of a calcium carbonate antacid (Tums) was admitted with obtundation and hyperreflexia, which disappeared[] Blood gases and chemistries returned with evidence of anion gap metabolic acidosis with compensatory respiratory response. The blood cultures showed gram positive cocci.[]

  • Acute Hyperventilation

    Respiratory Acidosis. Medscape Reference [On-line information]. Available online at through . Accessed January 2014. Couturier, M. et. al. (Updated 2013 March).[] Acute secondary hypocalcemia can result in carpopedal spasm, muscle twitching, a prolonged QT interval, and positive Chvostek and Trousseau signs.[] twitching Many different factors can cause chest symptoms with hyperventilation syndrome.[]

  • Psychogenic Hyperventilation

    The Four Primary Disturbances of Acid-Base Balance Primary Respiratory Acidosis initiating event:  V A (hypoventilation) chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) weak[] -Exhibits possible signs of upper motor neuron dysfunction, such as Babinski reflex or hyperreflexia. -Loses reflexes with deep or prolonged coma.[] twitching Many different factors can cause chest symptoms with hyperventilation syndrome.[]

  • Fluoxetine

    Respiratory responses to acidosis were evaluated in brainstem slices.[] The clinical features included coma, mydriasis, hyperthermia, tremor, hyperreflexia, rhabdomyolysis, renal failure and respiratory insufficiency.[] This condition is characterized by high or low blood pressure, racing heartbeat, muscle stiffness, muscle twitching, dizziness, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, tremors, seizures[]

  • Tensilon

  • Nemaline Myopathy 2

    Upon admission to ICU, hypotension and respiratory acidosis were detected and orotracheal intubation and mechanical ventilation initiated.[] The patient presented mildly symmetrical hyperreflexia with positive Rossolimo signs. The patient underwent a muscle biopsy in left biceps brachii.[] ) Muscle atrophy (Medical Encyclopedia) Muscle function loss (Medical Encyclopedia) Muscle twitching (Medical Encyclopedia) Rhabdomyolysis (Medical Encyclopedia) Weakness[]

  • Hypertensive Crisis

    Systemic hypotension, metabolic and respiratory acidosis can ensue.[] Symptoms of thiocyanate toxicity include nausea, vomiting, muscle cramps, hyperreflexia, and disorientation.[] Nitroprusside has decreased efficacy in renal failure Toxic levels of cyanide build up rapidly in patients with renal failure Nausea, vomiting, muscle twitching and sweating[]

  • Strychnine Poisoning

    These spasms may lead to hyperthermia, profound lactic acidosis, and rhabdomyolysis.[] The ten main symptoms of strychnine poisoning: Initial symptoms are tightness and twitching of the muscles, agitation and hyperreflexia. Stiffness of the body. Lockjaw.[] The skin perception becomes aggravated, a crawling sensation appears, small muscle twitches, numbness, the slightest sound, light - irritate.[]
