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.[verywellhealth.com] Clinical examination revealed several elements of a frontal lobe dysfunction including apathy with motor impersistence, presence of primitive reflexes, generalized hyperreflexia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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[scientificamerican.com]

  • Meningitis

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

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis 11

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

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis 3

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

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis 8

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

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis 7

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

  • 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.[symptoma.com] Additional symptoms typical of ALS, such as fasciculations, spasticity, and hyperreflexia, have also been described in ALS9 patients.[symptoma.com] Bulbar onset is common but ALS9 patients also suffer from limb muscle weakness and show pyramidal signs.[symptoma.com]

  • Graves Disease

    On neurological examination the patient was presented with muscle weakness, muscle atrophy (in face and sternocleidomastoid muscles), features of myotonia and apocamnosis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] His exam is also notable for hyperreflexia and enlargement around his neck. An EKG reveals the following in figure A.[step2.medbullets.com] weakness, sleeping problems, fast heartbeat , poor tolerance of heat Graves' disease at Curlie (based on DMOZ )[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Hyperthyroidism

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

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis 2

    The clinical presentation may be dominated by spasticity or muscle weakness and atrophy.[symptoma.com] Behavioral studies demonstrated slowed movement without muscle weakness in ALS2 (-/-) mice, consistent with upper motor neuron defects that lead to spasticity in humans [5[wikigenes.org] 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.[ghr.nlm.nih.gov]
