30 Possible Causes for Muscle Twitch, Thenar Muscle Atrophy, Ulnar Neuropathy

  • Brachial Plexus Neuropathy

    The differential diagnosis between brachial plexus neuropathy and ulnar nerve neuropathy is important, as the prognosis of brachial plexus neuropathy is generally good.[] Two days after surgery, there was sensory loss and weakness in the right forearm and hand, which suggested an ulnar nerve neuropathy.[]

  • Median Neuropathy

    Abstract Many cases of work related compression neuropathy of the ulnar and median nerves at the wrist have been described.[] twitching, cramps, or spasms weakness pain muscle wasting difficulty moving, paralysis Neuropathy occurs when nerve cells are damaged or destroyed.[] muscle atrophy may occur.[]

  • Peripheral Neuropathy

    […] examination may be all that is required to diagnose carpal tunnel neuropathy or ulnar 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.[]

  • Ulnar Nerve Entrapment

    […] seen in idiopathic ulnar neuropathy.[] Guyon's Canal Syndrome symptoms include: Muscular atrophy - Primarily the hypothenar muscles and interossei with muscle sparing of the thenar group: weakened finger abduction[] Some of the pulses will make your muscle briefly twitch. These tests take around 45 minutes.[]

  • Upper Motor Neuron Disease

    Differential diagnosis Poliomyelitis, multifocal motor neuropathy with conduction block, syringomyelia (see these terms), anterior interosseous or deep ulnar neuropathy, cervical[] 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[]

  • Cervical Herniated Disc

    EMG/nerve conduction studies to determine if there is any nerve damage and to rule out other conditions, such as carpal tunnel syndrome or ulnar neuropathy TREATMENT Most[] 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.[]

  • Distal Hereditary Motor Neuropathy Type 5

    […] slowing of ulnar & fibular nerve at the compression sites Diffuse reduction of sensory nerve action potential amplitudes Biopsy: Focal sausage-like thickening of myelin termed[] 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.[]

  • Entrapment Neuropathy

    Median entrapment neuropathy at the wrist (MNW) and ulnar neuropathy at the elbow (UNE) and wrist (UNW) were diagnosed according to standard electrodiagnostic criteria.[] twitching), muscle loss, bone degeneration, and changes in the skin, hair, and nails.[] In advanced cases there may be atrophy of the thenar muscles, especially in the abductor pollicis brevis.[]

  • Peripheral Motor Neuropathy

    Evaluation and treatment of suspected mononeuropathy (eg, carpal tunnel syndrome, ulnar neuropathy at the elbow). Figure 2.[] 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[] […] and weakness of the thenar muscle group.[]

  • Neuropathy

    […] examination may be all that is required to diagnose carpal tunnel neuropathy or ulnar 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.[]
