1,081 Possible Causes for Muscle Tone Abnormalities

  • Primary Apnea

    Primary apnea is described as the cessation of breathing in a neonate secondary to idiopathic causes related to prematurity or underlying pathologies. The most common primary form of apnea occurs in preterm infants. The onset of AOP is typically within the first 48 hours of life although it can take up to a week[…][symptoma.com]

  • Athetoid Cerebral Palsy

    Patients also may have abrupt, irregular, jerky movements (chorea), a combination (choreoathetosis), or slow rhythmic movements with muscle tone abnormalities and abnormal[elkandelk.com] In GL, rigidospasticity was frequently demonstrated with fluctuation of athetoid movements, while in TP various abnormalities of muscle tone were observed, with rather restricted[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Patients’ face and tongue muscles may be affected, which may cause grimacing and/or drooling.[elkandelk.com]

  • Constipation

    Emly and colleagues ( Emly 1998 ) randomly allocated 32 individuals with cerebral palsy or genetic conditions associated with abnormal muscle tone and learning disability[dx.doi.org]

  • Temporomandibular Joint Disorder

    This abnormal elasticity of body tissues can place EDS patients at a higher risk for suffering from: Joint dislocation Severe bruising Weak muscle tone Organ malfunction Spinal[nydnrehab.com]

  • Hypertension

    […] endothelial function, increased smooth muscle tone, intimal-medial thickening, and increased collagen, fibronectin, hyaluronic acid, and collagen cross-link formation. 163,164[doi.org] […] increased vascular stiffness and altered arterial wall composition that precedes blood pressure increases by weeks. 162 These pressure-independent changes are caused by abnormal[doi.org]

  • Patulous Eustachian Tube

    Muscle tone of tensor veli palatini dilates the lumen; damage to tensor veli palatini following cleft palate surgery may produce a patulous tube.[emedicine.com] Weight loss can also lead to abnormal patency caused by reduced tissue pressure and loss of fat deposits in the eustachian tube region.[emedicine.com]

  • Neuropathy

    Muscle twitching. Cramps. Spasms. Loss of muscle control. Loss of muscle tone. Loss of dexterity. Falling. Inability to move a part of the body.[my.clevelandclinic.org] Common symptoms of autonomic neuropathy include: Abnormal blood pressure or heart rate. Decreased sweating. Problems with urination. Sexual dysfunction. Diarrhea.[my.clevelandclinic.org]

  • Vomiting of Pregnancy

    These abnormalities in gastric neural activity and smooth muscle function are associated with nausea and vomiting in nonpregnant patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Gastric neuromuscular dysfunctions of the stomach include abnormalities in gastric myoelectrical activity, gastric tone, and contractility, all of which may result in gastroparesis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Bruxism

    These include bruxism (tooth grinding), oral skill dysfunction, gross malocclusion due to effects of the abnormal orofacial muscle tone on tooth eruption, drooling of saliva[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Peripheral Neuropathy

    Muscle twitching. Cramps. Spasms. Loss of muscle control. Loss of muscle tone. Loss of dexterity. Falling. Inability to move a part of the body.[my.clevelandclinic.org] Common symptoms of autonomic neuropathy include: Abnormal blood pressure or heart rate. Decreased sweating. Problems with urination. Sexual dysfunction. Diarrhea.[my.clevelandclinic.org]
