304 Possible Causes for Muscle Weakness, Quadriceps Muscle Weakness, Tremor

  • Hyperthyroidism

    For example, beta-blockers help slow down a rapid heart rate and reduce hand tremors. Updated on: 05/07/19 Hyperthyroidism Symptoms[endocrineweb.com] She presented with muscle weakness, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea since one week. The initial diagnosis was TPP.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Muscle weakness was more severe in the proximal site than in the distal site.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Graves Disease

    Limbs: The limbs may show clubbing and fine tremors. Proximal myopathy can also be seen in some cases.[symptoma.com] On neurological examination the patient was presented with muscle weakness, muscle atrophy (in face and sternocleidomastoid muscles), features of myotonia and apocamnosis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This case emphasises the importance of considering TPP in patients with acute muscle weakness and the importance of promptly initiating treatment and preventing relapse of[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Poliomyelitis

    "In addition to symptoms of nonparalytic poliomyelitis, tremors and muscle weakness appear....[dx.doi.org] Muscle weakness may be responsible for postoperative instability, and careful selection of the patient with good upper extremity muscles must be made.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The slowly progressive muscle weakness occurs in those muscle groups already involved, such as the quadriceps and calf muscles.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Motor Neuron Disease

    After one year of follow-up the patient suspended oral steroids, postural tremor of the right hand disappeared and tongue fasciculations were reduced.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] wasting and weakness, absent reflexes, loss of weight and muscle twitching.[mndnsw.asn.au] […] of deep finger flexors and the quadriceps femoris with typical rimmed vacuoles on muscle biopsy Postpolio syndrome (PPS) Monomeric amyotrophy (also known as Hirayama disease[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Liver Cirrhosis

    Liver cirrhosis in the index patient was complicated by hyperamonemia, hepatic encephalopathy and flapping tremor.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] These conditions often lead to sarcopenia, which is the loss of skeletal muscle volume and increased muscle weakness.[dx.doi.org] […] vessels on the skin, especially around the navel Water retention and swelling in the legs and abdomen Vomiting blood Itching Abdominal infections Forgetfulness or confusion Tremors[chp.edu]

  • Inclusion Body Myositis

    […] unique presentations of inclusion body myositis (IBM) in two unrelated patients, one male and one female, with genetically and histologically confirmed fragile X-associated tremor[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We have identified several patients with sIBM in our cohort with muscle weakness of the flexors but not the quadriceps femoris.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] quadriceps and finger flexor muscle weakness years after the onset of the paraspinal muscle weakness.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Syringomyelia

    ...Chaix R. 2018 8 Unilateral hyperhidrosis as persistently isolated feature of syringomyelia and Arnold Chiari type 1. ( 29637451 ) Stancanelli C....Vita G. 2018 9 Head tremor[malacards.org] We investigated an 85-year-old male experiencing progressive gait disturbance, with leg numbness and muscle weakness.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A tremor involves the eyelids, lips, tongue, and fingers. The voice is tremulous and rapid alternating movements are impaired because of dyspraxia.[intranet.tdmu.edu.ua]

  • Ataxia

    An adult patient with cerebrotendinous xanthomatosis exhibited ataxia and palatal tremor in the absence of tendon xanthomas and cataracts.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Mitochondrial (mt) DNA-associated NARP (neurogenic muscle weakness, ataxia, and retinitis pigmentosa) syndrome is due to mutation in the MT-ATP6 gene.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Weakness of the quadriceps muscles will cause the patient to swing the affected leg forward and lock the knee at the time of heel-strike in order to prevent the leg from collapsing[dartmouth.edu]

  • Pyramidal Tract Disorder

    Essential tremor and cerebellar dysfunction clinical and kinematic analysis of intention tremor.[journals.plos.org] ; 40-60yo onset; LMN - ant horn, muscle weakness begins with atrophy of intrinsic muscles of the hands.[memorize.com] […] of deep finger flexors and the quadriceps femoris with typical rimmed vacuoles on muscle biopsy Postpolio syndrome (PPS) Monomeric amyotrophy (also known as Hirayama disease[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Autosomal Recessive Lower Motor Neuron Disease with Childhood Onset

    […] respiratory muscles, which can inhibit coughing Breathing problems Weakness in the muscles of the arms and especially of the legs Swallowing and feeding problems Slight tremor[thehumanthebody.com] Four of the five affected patients had muscle weakness since age 3, strongly worsening during childhood and leading to generalized tetraplegia in adulthood.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This usually affects the femoral nerve, with prominent weakness of the quadriceps muscle and loss of patellar reflex (termed diabetic amyotrophy).[dartmouth.edu]
