217 Possible Causes for Muscle Twitch, Unable to Stand

  • Spinal Cord Injury

    For those who are comfortable while standing, special standing apparatus of work equipment may be considered.[] This eventually leads to muscle weakening, twitching, and an inability to move the arms, legs, and body. The condition slowly gets worse.[] The study was carried out on acute SCI patients who were unable to walk without any physical assistance and both groups had the same amount of training.[]

  • Paraplegia

    All individuals were unable to stand or walk independently or voluntarily move their lower extremities after their injuries.[] , 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[] The definition of success pertaining to mortality and SCI will be assessed 30 days after TAAA repair, and ‘substantial SCI’ means that the patient is unable to stand without[]

  • Spinal Muscular Atrophy

    Children can sit without support but are unable to stand or walk unaided. Children also may have respiratory difficulties.[] […] facial twitching Atrophic muscle changes Muscle twitching Sensory neuropathies Difficulty sitting up or walking or crawling (infants ) Thin muscle mass Missing tendon reflexes[] They are able to sit without support but are unable to stand or walk unaided, and some may lose the ability to stay seated independently over time without treatment.[]

  • Myelitis

    BACKGROUND: HHV7 reactivation has been occasionally reported as a cause of encephalitis or myelitis in transplant recipients, but to our knowledge it has never been associated with neurological disease in HIV-infected patients. We report a case of acute myelitis in an HIV-infected patient, with sustained HHV-7 DNA[…][]

  • Subacute Transverse Myelitis

Xavier Merchan-del Hierro 1, Alexandra Halalau 2 1 Department of Neurology, Hospital Jose Carrasco Artega, Cuenca, Azuay, Ecuador 2 Internal Medicine Department, Beaumont Hospital, Royal Oak,[…][]

  • Acute Transverse Myelitis

    By the following day the weakness had progressed to a flaccid paraparesis of both lower limbs and she was unable to support herself in a standing position.[]

  • Spinal Cord Infarction

    Paraplegia caused by a spinal cord infarction (SCI) is a devastating perioperative complication, most often associated with aortic and spine surgery. We present two other clinical scenarios in which perioperative SCI may occur. They happened during surgical procedures performed with epidural anesthesia, in the[…][]

  • Spinal Cord Transection

    Review Questions: Case 3Following surgical repair of a knife wound the patient is unable to stand or walk becausehe is unable to move or bear weight on his right leg.[]

  • Poliomyelitis

    […] and/or joints Increased muscle weakness/muscle pain Decrease in muscle mass (muscle atrophy) Increasing joint instability/joint deformities Cramping Muscle twitching Changes[] They also demonstrated there is a fiber type transformation from type II (fast twitch, glycolytic) fibers to type I (slow twitch, oxidative) fibers based on these findings[] […] consequences of polio (post-polio syndrome) include: A general lack of strength and endurance Extreme fatigue Difficulty breathing and swallowing Intolerance to cold Pain in the muscles[]

  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

    In a study of 64 British adults with ME/CFS, 6 participants were unable to tolerate head-up tilt because of weakness.[] BFS has a variety of symptoms, including (but not limited to) frequent muscle twitches, muscle cramping, easy muscle fatigue, muscle aches and a "stiff" feeling, shakiness[] Three patients reported that they had first-degree relatives with muscle cramps or muscle twitching but nothing to suggest ALS.[]
