135 Possible Causes for Muscle Twitch, Slow Speech, Spasticity - Hyperreflexia

  • Hallervorden-Spatz Syndrome

    Described features include 9,11 : progressive dementia extrapyramidal signs (rigidity, dystonia, choreoathetosis) corticospinal signs (spasticity, hyperreflexia) dysarthria[radiopaedia.org] These abnormalities progressed over the years with slowing of voluntary movements, rigidity of limbs and dystonic posturing. Speech was slurred.[jpgmonline.com] They may experience involuntary muscle contractions (dystonia) of the head and neck, resulting in repetitive movements and contortions.[ghr.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    The upper motor signs include spasticity, hyperreflexia and weakness. The lower motor signs include amyotrophy, weakness and fasciculations.[symptoma.com] Symptoms of ALS include progressive muscle weakness beginning in the limbs, muscle twitching and cramping, slowed speech becoming progressively harder to understand, difficulty[brainfoundation.org.au] twitching for 3 years.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • 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]

  • Central Nervous System Disorder

    , tremor, spasticity, ataxia, contracture and paralysis sensory: hypoesthesia, numbness, paraesthesia, burning and shooting pain autonomic: urinary and defecatory problems[quizlet.com] In some cases, you may also exhibit: lack of coordination slowed or slurred speech drowsiness If the CNS slowing worsens, symptoms may include: poor judgment slowed breathing[healthline.com] Motor nerve damage causes muscle weakness, and symptoms may include painful cramps and muscle twitching, muscle loss, bone degeneration, and changes in the skin, hair, and[columbianeurosurgery.org]

  • Creutzfeldt Jakob Disease

    Clinical features of sCJD include myoclonic jerks, memory deficits, cerebellar signs (ataxia, nystagmus, tremors), pyramidal/corticospinal tract dysfunctions (spasticity,[doi.org] Startling may trigger muscle twitching. The muscles that control breathing and coughing are usually impaired, increasing the risk of pneumonia.[web.archive.org] Within weeks the person may complain of clumsiness and feeling muddled, become unsteady walking, and have slow or slurred speech.[alzheimers.org.uk]

  • Upper Motor Neuron Disease

    No spasticity or hyperreflexia.[brainscape.com] It causes weakness and stiffness in the arms and legs, a slowed walk, and poor coordination and balance. Speech also becomes slow and slurred.[webmd.com] Lower motor neuron disease causes weakness, loss of muscle ("atrophy") and muscle twitching ("fasciculations").[neurology.emory.edu]
