1,498 Possible Causes for Hyperreflexia, Muscle Weakness

  • Dementia

    In vascular dementia, the first symptoms are often the neurological ones, such as problems with reflexes, walking, and muscle weakness.[] Clinical examination revealed several elements of a frontal lobe dysfunction including apathy with motor impersistence, presence of primitive reflexes, generalized hyperreflexia[] Vladutiu reported that statin users who experience muscle pain and weakness as a side effect are more likely than other users to have preexisting genetic defects related to[]

  • Meningitis

    Wrist drop and muscle weakness of the fingers induced by an upper cervical spine anomaly.[] weakness , sudden severe dementia , and memory loss .[] Less common symptoms include: Sluggishness, muscle aches and weakness, and strange feelings (such as tingling) or weakness throughout the body.[]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis 11

    Muscle weakness is followed by atrophy, and fasciculations are very common, too.[] weakness.[] The fact that hyperreflexia may be detected in regions of muscle atrophy is considered to be highly indicative of ALS.[]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis 3

    In the long term, muscle weakness is followed by atrophy, but fasciculations are very common, too.[] The fact that hyperreflexia may be detected in regions of muscle atrophy is considered to be highly indicative of ALS.[] Affected individuals claim muscle weakness, which may initially be limited to the lower limbs, causing them to stumble.[]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis 8

    Weakness of the respiratory muscles requires ventilatory assistance.[] Pyramidal signs such as hyperreflexia have only been described in one single patient.[] Progressive muscle weakness and atrophy eventually leads to respiratory paralysis and death.[]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis 7

    Accordingly, ALS7 patients are expected to develop limb muscle weakness in adulthood.[] The fact that hyperreflexia may be detected in regions of muscle atrophy is considered to be highly indicative of ALS.[] Muscle weakness may initially be limited to one or two extremities, but subsequently spreads to the other limbs.[]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis 9

    Progressive lower and upper motor neuron loss results in bulbar palsy, muscle weakness followed by atrophy, hyperreflexia and an increase of muscle tone.[] Additional symptoms typical of ALS, such as fasciculations, spasticity, and hyperreflexia, have also been described in ALS9 patients.[] Bulbar onset is common but ALS9 patients also suffer from limb muscle weakness and show pyramidal signs.[]

  • Graves Disease

    On neurological examination the patient was presented with muscle weakness, muscle atrophy (in face and sternocleidomastoid muscles), features of myotonia and apocamnosis[] His exam is also notable for hyperreflexia and enlargement around his neck. An EKG reveals the following in figure A.[] weakness, sleeping problems, fast heartbeat , poor tolerance of heat Graves' disease at Curlie (based on DMOZ )[]

  • Hyperthyroidism

    She presented with muscle weakness, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea since one week. The initial diagnosis was TPP.[] […] despite a voracious appetite Irritability Poor sleep Hypertension Proptosis with lid retraction and stare Warm, flushed skin Microcephaly with craniosynostosis Frontal bossing Hyperreflexia[] However, in the longer term, less desirable symptoms, such as muscle weakness, insomnia and trembling can also result.[]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis 2

    The clinical presentation may be dominated by spasticity or muscle weakness and atrophy.[] Behavioral studies demonstrated slowed movement without muscle weakness in ALS2 (-/-) mice, consistent with upper motor neuron defects that lead to spasticity in humans [5[] This disorder is characterized by progressive weakness and stiffness of muscles in the legs, arms, neck, and head that begins within the first 2 years of life.[]
