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.[] Also of diagnostic importance are the myotonic reactions inducible at room temperature, such as percussion myotonia, active myotonia and paradoxical myotonia.[] Percussion myotonia of the tongue and thenar muscles could be elicited at room temperature. Myotonia was aggravated by cold.[]

  • Myotonia Congenita

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

  • Myotonic Dystrophy

    Percussion myotonia or myotonia of grasp or both is usually present if looked for.[] 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[]

  • Generalized Myotonia of Thomsen

    On examination he showed percussion myotonia. There was no grip myotonia or eyelid myotonia. Nerve conduction studies were normal.[] Physiotherapy - Physiotherapy helps prevent muscles from weakening or becoming stiff and spastic.[] Secondary outcomes: (1) clinical relaxation time; (2) electromyographic relaxation time; (3) stair test; (4) presence of percussion myotonia; and (5) adverse events.[]

  • 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,[] 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[] 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.[]

  • Muscular Fasciculation

    Myokymia, muscle hypertrophy and percussion "myotonia" in chronic recurrent polyneuropathy. Neurology . 1978 Nov. 28(11):1130-4. [Medline] .[] Muscle spasticity: Traditionally, spasticity is defined as the velocity-dependent resistance to stretch.[] Involvement of UMN results in stiffness of muscles (spasticity) and slowed movements.[]

  • Behr Syndrome

    , Cramps, Myalgias Epidemiology: 1 family Inheritance: Dominant Clinical Percussion myotonia Cramps Stiffness: Posteffort Myotonic lid lag Laboratory Muscle: Cylindrical spirals[] The ataxia, spasticity, and muscle contractures, mainly of the hip adductors, hamstrings, and soleus, are progressive and become more prominent in the second decade.[] Definition An autosomal recessive syndrome characterized by optic atrophy beginning in early childhood associated with ataxia, pyramidal signs, spasticity, mental retardation[]

  • Sarcotubular Myopathy

  • 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)[] 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.[] Dias C, Sincan M, Cherukuri PF, Rupps R, Huang Y, et al.
