43 Possible Causes for Muscle Twitch, Thenar Muscle Atrophy

  • Brachial Plexus Neuropathy

    Abstract Surgery of the longstanding untreated muscular torticollis in adults is limited to some complex cases because of its poor results. In this article, we are reporting a case of an idiopathic torticollis complicated with both vertebral artery compression and brachial plexus neuropathy due to fibrous bands of[…][]

  • Peripheral Neuropathy

    They include: Numbness or reduced sensation Tingling Pain, often a burning or sharp, cutting sensation Sensitivity to touch Muscle twitches Muscle weakness Difficulty with[] […] and weakness of the thenar muscle group.[] Motor neuropathy symptoms may include: Muscle weakness Cramps Muscle twitching Loss of muscle and bone Changes in skin, hair, or nails Sensory neuropathy symptoms may include[]

  • Median Neuropathy

    twitching, cramps, or spasms weakness pain muscle wasting difficulty moving, paralysis Neuropathy occurs when nerve cells are damaged or destroyed.[] muscle atrophy may occur.[] 354.0 ICD10 G56.0, G56.00 SnomedCT 155073007, 193126005, 57406009, 246611002 English Carpal Tunnel Syndromes, Syndromes, Carpal Tunnel, Syndrome, Carpal Tunnel, AMYOTROPHY, THENAR[]

  • Upper Motor Neuron Disease

    Lower motor neuron disease causes weakness, loss of muscle ("atrophy") and muscle twitching ("fasciculations").[] […] group of muscles, including the abductor pollicis brevis (APB) and first dorsal interosseous (FDI), when compared to the abductor digit minimi (ADM) [Figure 1]. 14,22 This[] Apraxia (Medical Encyclopedia) Hand or foot spasms (Medical Encyclopedia) Muscle atrophy (Medical Encyclopedia) Muscle function loss (Medical Encyclopedia) Muscle twitching[]

  • Cervical Herniated Disc

    Visible muscle twitches or spasms may also suggest nerve damage. X-ray Your doctor may recommend an X-ray to look at the vertebrae surrounding a herniated disc.[] With compression of the nerve, you may feel a muscle twitch, spasm and even feel the muscle getting weak.[] Your doctor may ask you to use specific muscle groups in moving parts of your body to assess strengths and weaknesses.[]

  • Cervical Myelopathy

    […] and jumping of the arm or leg muscles There may be pain in the arms if a nerve root is affected Diagnosing Cervical Myelopathy You must go and see a doctor for an assessment[] […] groups, especially in the extremities poor or pathologic tandem gait atrophy of the hand’s thenar prominence (the fleshy fat pad just superior to the thumb on the ventral[] – patients describe the sensation as feeling as if their legs didn’t belong to them Difficulty with finger dexterity – doing up buttons and writing may become a problem Twitching[]

  • Myelopathy

  • Distal Hereditary Motor Neuropathy Type 5

    twitching first noted in late teens or adulthood To learn how different aspects of care may relate to the signs and symptoms of SMA, click here.[] Symptoms usually include mild muscle weakness, tremor and twitching. Life expectancy is normal and the muscles for swallowing and breathing are rarely affected.[] […] achieved ALL Life expectancy (untreated SMA) NORMAL Clinical characteristics Physical symptoms are similar to late-onset SMA, with the gradual onset of weakness, tremor, and muscle[]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis 5

    The earliest symptoms include muscle twitching, cramping, stiffness, or weakness.[] In the patient, examinations revealed a steppage gait, atrophy of the bilateral interosseous and thenar muscles with a split-hand sign, mild weakness in the hands and lower[] Muscle twitches and cramps are common; they occur because degenerating axons (long fibers extending from nerve-cell bodies) become “irritable.” 1 Symptoms may be limited to[]

  • Neuropathy

    They may also suffer from cramps, muscle twitching, muscle and bone loss, and changes in the skin, hair and nails.[] […] and weakness of the thenar muscle group.[] […] to lack of activity muscle twitching and cramps.[]
