1,264 Possible Causes for Muscle Weakness, Peripheral Motor Neuropathy

  • Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy

    […] of the muscle weakness.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] About CIDP Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy is an immune-mediated neuropathy that affects the peripheral motor and sensory nerves.[bcm.edu] CIDP is one of the few peripheral neuropathies amenable to treatment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    But weakness that increases over several days is also common. Muscle weakness or loss of muscle function (paralysis) affects both sides of the body.[medlineplus.gov] In this type, the covering around peripheral nerve cells, called myelin, is damaged. Acute motor axonal neuropathy (AMAN).[childrenshospital.org] Electromyography showed peripheral nerve injury (mainly in axon). The patient was diagnosed as having acute motor sensory axonal neuropathy (AMSAN).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acute Intermittent Porphyria

    weakness.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] motor neuropathy.[bestpractice.bmj.com] weakness, or mental symptoms, in the absence of other obvious causes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acute Hepatic Porphyria

    weakness.[symptoma.com] neuropathy (patchy numbness and paresthesias), Proximal motor weakness (usually starting in upper extremities which can progress to include respiratory impairment and death[house.wikia.com] Additional findings that can lead a physician to suspect porphyria include new-onset hypertension in a young patient, proximal muscle weakness, or dark or reddish-brown urine[hematologyandoncology.net]

  • Diabetic Amyotrophy

    A 56 year-old man with diabetes mellitus and pain, muscle weakness and wasting in both thighs, of three months duration, had a diagnosis of diabetic amyotrophy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] These include: Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy Diabetic Autonomic Neuropathy Diabetic Proximal Neuropathy Diabetic Focal Neuropathy Diabetic Proximal Neuropathy is a motor[dovemed.com] It is characterised by lancinating pain followed by muscle weakness, usually in the hip and thigh.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Entrapment Neuropathy

    Typical symptoms include muscle weakness, pain, numbness and tingling.[epainassist.com] Peripheral neuropathy occurs in 10% of patients with rheumatoid arthritis.[spineuniverse.com] Manual muscle-strength testing revealed weakness in several muscles and deep tendon reflexes were absent in the upper extremities.[touchneurology.com]

  • Peripheral Neuropathy

    A 55-year-old woman with consanguineous parents developed slowly progressive, asymmetric muscle weakness and atrophy in her forearms, while her ability to walk remained unaffected[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] OBJECTIVE: Chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN) presents itself as sensory peripheral neuropathy (SPN) or motor peripheral neuropathy (MPN).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We present a 70-year-old male patient of Greek origin with choreatic movements of the tongue and face, lower limb muscle weakness, peripheral neuropathy, elevated creatinephosphokinase[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Multifocal Motor Neuropathy

    Her disease was difficult to manage with various immunosuppressants, and the muscle weakness eventually progressed to involve the respiratory muscles, necessitating mechanical[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Some patients with the syndrome of a multifocal motor neuropathy may have MND rather than, or in addition to, a demyelinating peripheral motor neuropathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Motor neuropathy with multifocal conduction blocks represents a recently identified autoimmune disorder of the peripheral nerve myelin.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Lead Poisoning

    We report a case of total hyperpigmentation of the skin, severe itching, muscle weakness and thrombocytosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Can cause peripheral motor neuropathy (i.e., wrist drop). [Dsouza, 2009] There is no “safe” lead level – we are not supposed to have lead in our bodies.[pedemmorsels.com] Neurological signs of acute poisoning typically are: paraesthesiae, pain, muscle weakness, encephalopathy (rare) with headache, convulsions, delirium, and coma.[doi.org]

  • Neuropathy

    It is manifested with pain, tingling, numbness, and muscle weakness.[fpnotebook.com] Idiopathic small fiber peripheral neuropathy Mixed sensory-motor polyneuropathy Neuropathy (nerve damage), peripheral axonal nerve Neuropathy, peripheral axonal nerve Notalgia[icd9data.com] That myo in the word means muscle, so this is a form of neuropathy that can cause muscle weakness.[endocrineweb.com]
