1,323 Possible Causes for Hypertension, Proximal Muscle Weakness

  • Acromegaly

    Prevalence of hypertension at the initial visit was much higher in those with MI or stroke than those without (94 vs. 43%, p   0.001).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Although there is a lack of systematic studies on muscle function, it is believed that patients with acromegaly may suffer from proximal muscle weakness despite their increased[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Acromegaly has several cardiovascular manifestations of which cardiomyopathy (CMP) and hypertension (HTN) are important and contribute to the increased mortality associated[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cushing's Disease

    Several studies have reported an association between idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH) and deficits of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The following signs and symptoms are common: Weight gain Skin changes Hirsutism Menstrual disorders Progressive proximal muscle weakness Infertility Impotence Moodiness, irritability[symptoma.com] This is a longitudinal study performed in 10 patients with active CD matched with 10 hypertensive and 10 healthy controls.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    Subsequently, the patient developed severe constipation and hypertension with tachycardia. Nerve conduction studies revealed demyelinating polyneuropathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Proximal muscle weakness very frequent, especially initially, with subsequent distal arm and leg weakness. ii.[physio-pedia.com] Risk factors associated with hyponatremia in multivariable analysis included advanced age, deficiency anemia, alcohol abuse, hypertension, and intravenous immunoglobulin ([ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Malignant Hypertension

    We present the case of a 40-year-old patient, with no previous history of hypertension, who was admitted for malignant hypertension.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Central core disease is the only disease certainly related to the MHS, it is a sarcoplasmic myopathy characterised by proximal muscle weakness.[anaesthetist.com] Malignant hypertension and hypertensive encephalopathy are life-threating manifestations of hypertension.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • X-Linked Hypophosphatemia

    Patients with hypertension had a significantly lower eGFR (p 0.010) compared to patients without hypertension.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] muscle weakness for 8 years.[casereports.bmj.com] Patients with hypertension had a significantly lower eGFR ( p 0.010) compared to patients without hypertension.[jstage.jst.go.jp]

  • Conn Syndrome

    Hypertensive patients (N 3900) referred to our unit were screened for PA by measuring renin activity, urinary aldosterone-18-glucuronide, tetrahydroaldosterone, and 18-hydroxycorticosterone[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] muscle weakness, headache, polyuria, hypokalemia, hypocalcemia, tachycardia with / without palpitations Diagnosis Well circumscribed lesion comprised of cells resembling[pathologyoutlines.com] The second patient was a woman aged 56 who presented with a 16-year history of hypertension and profound hypokalaemia.[endocrine-abstracts.org]

  • Cerebral Edema

    The condition, which is mostly associated with severe arterial hypertension, has also been reported to be induced by several medications.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] He developed refractory hyperglycemia, weight gain, and bilateral proximal muscle weakness secondary to this therapy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] At re-warming, patient had resolution of her cerebral edema and intracranial hypertension. At discharge, she had complete recovery of neurological and hepatic functions.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acute Intermittent Porphyria

    A 47-year-old man presented with abdominal pain, neck stiffness, severe transient hypertension and unusually dark urine.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Proximal muscle weakness typically beginning in the arms is characteristic; there can be muscle pain, tingling, numbness, weakness or paralysis; [5] muscle weakness seen in[en.wikipedia.org] Muscle weakness often begins proximally in the legs but may involve the arms or the distal extremities; involvement may be symmetric, asymmetric, or focal, and may occasionally[diagnose-me.com]

  • Polyarteritis Nodosa

    Hypertension (HT) represents a major public health problem affecting many individuals worldwide.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] On a physical examination, rapidly progressive lower proximal muscle weakness and bilateral drop foot were observed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Symptoms responded to management with anti-hypertensives and anti-epileptics.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cushing Syndrome

    At 18 weeks of gestation, severe hypertension developed. Medical history was significant for chronic hypertension, nephrolithiasis, and an atrial myxoma excised in 2011.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We report a case of a 74-year-old male patient who presented with severe hypokalemia, proximal muscle weakness, peripheral edema, metabolic alkalosis, and worsening hyperglycemia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Patients often display weight gain with central obesity, facial rounding and plethora, proximal muscle weakness, and thinning of the skin.[bestpractice.bmj.com]
