125 Possible Causes for Muscle Twitch, Peripheral Paralysis, Spasticity - Hyperreflexia

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Type 1

    hyperreflexia ( ) Hoffman's ( ) Babinski's spastic dysarthria lower motor neuron (LMN) signs muscular atrophy weakness clinical fasciculations clumsiness Evaluation Diagnosis[orthobullets.com] Muscles twitch (called fasciculations) and waste away.[msdmanuals.com] On physical exam, signs of hyperreflexia, spasticity, fasciculations, and muscle atrophy are present in an asymmetric fashion. Tongue fasciculations are also present.[medbullets.com]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    The upper motor signs include spasticity, hyperreflexia and weakness. The lower motor signs include amyotrophy, weakness and fasciculations.[symptoma.com] twitching for 3 years.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] ., 1990 ), stroke ( Holroyd and Hill, 1989 ), peripheral nerve lesions ( Pajntar et al., 1980 ), cases of organic paralysis ( Lucas et al., 1981 ), various type of dystonia[dx.doi.org]

  • Upper Motor Neuron Disease

    No spasticity or hyperreflexia.[brainscape.com] Lower motor neuron disease causes weakness, loss of muscle ("atrophy") and muscle twitching ("fasciculations").[neurology.emory.edu] Examples of lower motor neuron disease are muscular dystrophies, poliomyelitis, myasthenia gravis and peripheral nerve injuries.[physiotherapy-treatment.com]

  • Myelopathy

    Physical examination commonly elicits long tract signs such as spasticity, hyperreflexia, and abnormal reflexes such as Babinski or Hoffman's sign.[neurosurgery.ucla.edu] Peripheral nervous system While it is possible to envisage an acute metabolic myopathy, such as a periodic paralysis, mimicking an acute myelopathy, the main peripheral disorder[pn.bmj.com] […] gait," hesitant and jerky) Myelopathic or "upper motor neuron" findings such as spasticity, hyperreflexia, clonus, Babinski, and Hoffman signs, and bowel and bladder dysfunction[emoryhealthcare.org]

  • Multifocal Motor Neuropathy

    Upper motor neuron signs (spasticity, hyperreflexia, extensor plantar response).[clinicaltrials.gov] Usually beginning in one or both hands, MMN is characterized by weakness, muscle atrophy, cramping, and often profuse fasciculations (muscle twitching).[en.wikipedia.org] Diaphragmatic paralysis has previously been reported as a result of diverse pathologic processes involving the peripheral nervous system.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Progressive Muscular Atrophy

    Clinical Loss of fine motor skills, triad of atrophic weakness of hands and forearms; leg spasticity; generalised hyperreflexia. Management Possibly riluzole.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] This then leads to fasciculations (muscle twitches), progressively worsening muscle weakness, and a loss of muscle mass and weight.[mndcentre.org.uk] […] muscular atrophy, progressive myopathy, progressive muscular dystrophy, peripheral neuritis, and syringomyelia.The neurologists Joseph Jules Dejerine and William Richard[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis

    Affected individuals may have tremors, muscle stiffness (spasticity), exaggerated reflexes (hyperreflexia), weakness or partial paralysis of the muscles of the limbs, difficulty[icdlist.com] […] and optic nerves causing paralysis, tremor, disturbance of speech, nystagmus, diplopia due to involvement of the extraocular muscles, and frequently retrobulbar optic neuritis[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] (MS). sclerosis, multiple (MS) An autoimmune disease in which there are disseminated patches of demyelination and sclerosis (or hardening) of the brain, spinal cord and peripheral[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.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] , 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] It may also include paralysis of the bladder and bowel.[britannica.com]

  • Spinal Cord Infarction

    Initially areflexia is present due to spinal shock but, hyperreflexia and spasticity appear later The most common form is anterior spinal artery syndrome.[sci-recovery.org] A 48-year-old man with syncope and diffuse muscle twitches. Neurohospitalist. 2012 Jul; 2(3):107-11. PMID: 23983873; PMCID: PMC3726089.[connects.catalyst.harvard.edu] After sensitivity disorder in patients develops a hand muscles flaccid paralysis (peripheral type) and a leg muscles spastic paraparesis (central type) due spinal cord pyramidal[minclinic.ru]

  • Cross Syndrome
