43 Possible Causes for Muscle Spasticity, Percussion Myotonia

  • 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] 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] Percussion myotonia of the tongue and thenar muscles could be elicited at room temperature. Myotonia was aggravated by cold.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Myotonia Congenita

    The diagnosis were based upon family history, clinical findings of percussion myotonia, had grip myotania, prominent muscular hypertrophy and confirmed by electromyographic[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Caring for muscle spasticity or spasms Compartment syndrome Contracture deformity Creatine phosphokinase test Electromyography Eyelid twitch Hypotonia Muscle aches Muscle[icdlist.com] Distribution/anatomy Time course Onset/age Myotonia is usually mild, approximately 50% may have percussion myotonia.[rrnursingschool.biz]

  • Myotonic Dystrophy

    Percussion myotonia or myotonia of grasp or both is usually present if looked for.[pediatrics.aappublications.org] The less common clinical syndromes, which include the two possible cases of myotonic dystrophy, are: (2) almost pure myotonia, symptomatic from early infancy (one case) or[pediatrics.aappublications.org]

  • 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] Physiotherapy - Physiotherapy helps prevent muscles from weakening or becoming stiff and spastic.[news-medical.net] Secondary outcomes: (1) clinical relaxation time; (2) electromyographic relaxation time; (3) stair test; (4) presence of percussion myotonia; and (5) adverse events.[cochrane.org]

  • Bilateral Leg Weakness

    Inflammation of muscles produces irritability of the muscles which is sometimes visible with gentle percussion- Marked contractions of muscles after percussion, myotonia,[pedclerk.bsd.uchicago.edu] Are characterised by increased muscle tone (spasticity), weakness (generally flexors weaker than extensors in the legs and the reverse in the arms - pyramidal pattern of weakness[ole.bris.ac.uk] The small muscles of the hands and feet are usually first affected, but muscle spasticity is absent. Primary lateral sclerosis - this is another rare type of MND.[patient.info]

  • Autosomal Dominant Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy Type 1D

    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] Central nervous system involvement such as increased reflexes or involuntary muscle spasms (spasticity) that result in slow, stiff movements of the legs may also develop.[rarediseases.org] Dias C, Sincan M, Cherukuri PF, Rupps R, Huang Y, et al.
