232 Possible Causes for Muscle Spasticity, Muscle Twitch, Spasticity - Hyperreflexia

  • Upper Motor Neuron Disease

    No spasticity or hyperreflexia.[brainscape.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] Lower motor neuron disease causes weakness, loss of muscle ("atrophy") and muscle twitching ("fasciculations").[neurology.emory.edu]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    The upper motor signs include spasticity, hyperreflexia and weakness. The lower motor signs include amyotrophy, weakness and fasciculations.[symptoma.com] This is a progressive and fatal disease, with initial complaints about muscle spasticity followed by progressively worsening muscle weakness.[fusfoundation.org] twitching for 3 years.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Type 9

    Additional symptoms typical of ALS, such as fasciculations, spasticity, and hyperreflexia, have also been described in ALS9 patients.[symptoma.com] […] of muscles, and spasticity are getting progressively worse.[ninds.nih.gov] Spasticity and muscle cramps may be resolved by muscle relaxants like quinine, levetiracetam, baclofen, or dantrolene.[symptoma.com]

  • Paraplegia

    This development led to an evaluation by a neurosurgeon, who noted spasticity and hyperreflexia. Sensory testing demonstrated a possible sensory thoracic level.[medscape.com] Firstly, chronic spasticity might be a risk factor for histopathological muscle alterations.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] , but also to cause muscle hypertrophy and muscle fibre shift from fast twitch type 2X to 2A. 3 In addition to these effects, oxidative enzyme activity has also been shown[bjsm.bmj.com]

  • Cervical Spondylosis

    Objective neurological deficit (upper motor neurone signs in the legs (eg, up-going plantars, hyperreflexia, clonus, spasticity); lower motor neurone signs in the arms (eg[patient.info] The main clinical features are localized wasting and weakness of the extrinsic and intrinsic hand muscles, but not accompanied by either sensory loss or spastic quadriparesis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] There is often proximal weakness of the lower extremities (mild to moderate iliopsoas muscle weakness occurs in about 50%) and a spasticity of the lower extremity.[termedia.pl]

  • Spinal Cord Injury

    Spasticity is characterized as hyperreflexia and hypertonicity as a result of damage to the supraspinal tracts in the aftermath of SCI.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] spasticity (increased muscle tone) management Medicines and alternative methods of managing pain and spasticity Psychological counseling Identifying problems and solutions[hopkinsmedicine.org] This eventually leads to muscle weakening, twitching, and an inability to move the arms, legs, and body. The condition slowly gets worse.[neuralstem.com]

  • Spinal Cord Lesion

    Commonly results in bladder overactivity or hyperreflexia, (AKA " reflex ", or " spastic " bladder).[rnceus.com] spasticity (increased muscle tone) management Medicines and alternative methods of managing pain and spasticity Psychological counseling Identifying problems and solutions[hopkinsmedicine.org] […] reflexly to cause the normally visible muscle twitch.[encyclopedia.com]

  • Spinal Cord Transection

    It presents with spastic paresis, hyperreflexia, and continued sensory loss.[amboss.com] spasticity (increased muscle tone) management Medications and alternative methods of managing pain and spasticity Psychological counseling Identifying problems and solutions[urmc.rochester.edu] Spasticity can reduce venous pooling and stabilize the thoracic and abdominal muscles used in respiration.[americannursetoday.com]

  • Spastic Paraparesis-Deafness Syndrome

    , hyperreflexia, urinary bladder disturbance (hypertonic bladder) and extensor plantar responses with weakness of a pyramidal distribution in the lower limbs.[ruralneuropractice.com] Lower motor neurons then carry the messages out to the muscles. This results in a progressive increase in muscle spasticity and weakness.[biomediclabs.com] Apraxia (Medical Encyclopedia) Hand or foot spasms (Medical Encyclopedia) Muscle atrophy (Medical Encyclopedia) Muscle function loss (Medical Encyclopedia) Muscle twitching[icdlist.com]

  • Primary Lateral Sclerosis

    […] a slowly progressing degenerative brain disease characterized by weakness, spasticity, hyperreflexia, and a positive Babinski sign.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] Although the muscles do not appear to atrophy as in ALS (at least initially), the disabling aspect of PLS is muscle spasticity and cramping, and intense pain when those muscles[en.wikipedia.org] As muscles are not directly affected, there is no muscle shrinkage or fasciculations (sub-dermal muscle twitches), with this type of MND.[mndcentre.org.uk]
