188 Possible Causes for Hyperventilation, Hypokalemic Periodic Paralysis, Muscle Twitch

  • Acute Hyperventilation

    Severe prognosis in a large family with hypokalemic periodic paralysis. Muscle Nerve 2003 ; 27 : 165 –9 8 Geffner I, Murgatroyd J. Tetany.[] Symptoms of hyperventilation are likewise independent of the inspired oxygen concentration for the range studied.[] Acute secondary hypocalcemia can result in carpopedal spasm, muscle twitching, a prolonged QT interval, and positive Chvostek and Trousseau signs.[]

  • Psychogenic Hyperventilation

    […] the hyperventilation were absent.[] twitching.[] Acute secondary hypocalcemia can result in carpopedal spasm, muscle twitching, prolonged QT interval, and positive Chvostek and Trousseau signs.[]

  • Anxiety Disorder

    Four patients had hyperventilation, one sleep apnea, and two somatization disorders.[] twitches.[] Signs and Symptoms of Anxiety Feeling nervous, irritable or on edge Having a sense of impending danger, panic or doom Having an increased heart rate Breathing rapidly (hyperventilation[]

  • Epilepsy

    Hyperventilation attacks are caused by the metabolic consequences of hypocapnia.[] These seizures produce muscle twitches, convulsions and loss of consciousness. People with this type of epilepsy do not remember having a seizure.[] Others may consist only of a few muscle twitches, a turn of the head, or a strange smell or visual disturbance that only you sense.[]

  • Hypokalemia

    Hypokalemic periodic paralysis (HypoKPP) is one of the primary forms of periodic paralysis, caused by one or more mutations in the calcium, sodium or potassium ion channels[] The increase in stress hormone level and hyperventilation caused by the postoperative pain may contribute to the development of hypokalemia during postoperative period.[] […] deficiency may produce muscular weakness and lead to paralysis and respiratory failure; muscular malfunction may result in hypoventilation, paralytic ileus, hypotension, muscle[]

  • Vasovagal Syncope

    […] dehydration, sleep deprivation, suddenly standing motionless following vigorous exercise, hot weather conditions or overheating, prolonged breath holds (choirs, wind instruments, hyperventilation[] […] to twitch very slightly but mostly remain very tense.[] Before the syncopal event, the patient may report weakness, lightheadedness, yawning, nausea, diaphoresis, hyperventilation, blurred vision or impaired hearing.[]

  • Conversion Disorder

    Doctors may test for health problems such as: Stroke, epilepsy, hypokalemic periodic paralysis, or multiple sclerosis.[] It may also affect the voluntary nervous system and patient may present with hyperventilation, convulsions, paraesthesias etc. Q. How common is hysteria?[] Included are tremors, tics (involuntary twitches), and disorganized mobility or paralysis.[]

  • Conn Syndrome

    Then hypoxaemia stimulates the peripheral chemoreceptors, causing hyperventilation. This hyperventilation prevents the decrease in oxygen pressure in the blood.[] Pins and needles feeling Eyesight problems Paralysis that comes and goes Muscle twitching and cramps The severity may depend on the degree of the electrolyte abnormality.[] Hypokalaemia may also occur in familial periodic paralysis, which may be associated with thyrotoxicosis , particularly in patients of Chinese ethnic origin.[]

  • Hyperthyroidism

    Thyrotoxic periodic paralysis (TPP) is an endocrine disorder presenting with proximal motor weakness, typically greatest in the lower extremities, hypokalemia, and signs or[] Symptoms of Hyperthyroidism Hyperthyroidism symptoms vary and may include the following: Impotence in Males Muscle Spasms, Cramps, Twitching & Tremors Acne Eye Twitch Headaches[] […] heart beats or palpitations, shortness of breath Anxiety, difficulty concentrating, restlessness, shakiness, tremor, irritability Feeling warm and/or increased sweating Muscle[]

  • Alkalosis

    A further four patients (22%) did not hyperventilate, but had clear histories of hyperventilation when younger.[] People may have irritability, muscle twitching, muscle cramps, or even muscle spasms. Blood is tested to diagnose alkalosis.[] […] insipidus ( E23.2 ) electrolyte imbalance associated with hyperemesis gravidarum ( O21.1 ) electrolyte imbalance following ectopic or molar pregnancy ( O08.5 ) familial periodic[]
