39 Possible Causes for Mild Cognitive Impairment, Muscle Spasticity, Percussion Myotonia

  • Myotonic Dystrophy

    Percussion myotonia or myotonia of grasp or both is usually present if looked for.[pediatrics.aappublications.org] Specifically, the regional distribution and neuropsychologic correlates of NFTs and amyloid plaques in cognitively normal elderly subjects and in persons with mild cognitive[doi.org] In addition to muscle problems, issues with respiratory function, heart abnormalities, cataracts, cognitive impairment and personality abnormalities are often seen.[web.archive.org]

  • Paramyotonia Congenita

    They experience neither grip nor percussion myotonia during warm weather, whereas myotonia is provoked by cold. Her younger son has no symptoms.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] cognitive impairments 17 ; more severe intellectual disability is more common with younger onset of clinical disease.[now.aapmr.org] Also of diagnostic importance are the myotonic reactions inducible at room temperature, such as percussion myotonia, active myotonia and paradoxical myotonia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Generalized Myotonia of Thomsen

    On examination he showed percussion myotonia. There was no grip myotonia or eyelid myotonia. Nerve conduction studies were normal.[jnnp.bmj.com] Spasticity, dystonia, tremor and migraine were variably present; cognitive impairment was severe in early childhood cases, but was absent in adults.[jnnp.bmj.com] Physiotherapy - Physiotherapy helps prevent muscles from weakening or becoming stiff and spastic.[news-medical.net]

  • Upper Motor Neuron Disease

    Myotonia is a slowness of relaxation of muscles after a voluntary contraction or a contraction provoked by muscle percussion.[dartmouth.edu] Although most cases of MND show only mild or no cognitive impairment, up to 15% may present with frank frontotemporal dementia, which is then associated with more rapidly[pn.bmj.com] , in particular the limbs, where movement becomes more and more difficult The limb muscles begin to shrink and some develop spasticity, where they become stiff Pain in the[newhealthadvisor.com]

  • Congenital Muscular Dystrophy

    Myotonia (prolonged muscle contraction) occurs spontaneously or is elicited by voluntary activity or by mild stimulation, such as tapping on a muscle (percussion myotonia)[neuropathology-web.org] Mutations in INPP5K, Encoding a Phosphoinositide 5-Phosphatase, Cause Congenital Muscular Dystrophy with Cataracts and Mild Cognitive Impairment.[disorders.eyes.arizona.edu] We describe a 5-year-old girl with psychomotor retardation, ataxia, spasticity, muscle weakness and increased serum creatine kinase levels.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Sarcotubular Myopathy

    There was no actionor percussion myotonia, or muscle rippling. The tendonreflexes and sensory examination were normal.[documents.tips] Additional features can include cramps, calf hypertrophy, rhabdomyolysis, mild cognitive impairment, epilepsy, and cardiac conduction defects.[emedicine.medscape.com] Caring for muscle spasticity or spasms (Medical Encyclopedia) Compartment syndrome (Medical Encyclopedia) Contracture deformity (Medical Encyclopedia) Creatine phosphokinase[icdlist.com]

  • Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy Type 1E
