  • Muscular Dystrophy

    It causes progressive weakness in muscles of the face, arms, legs, and around the shoulders and chest.[ninds.nih.gov] The majority of individuals are unable to sit or stand without support, and some affected children may never learn to walk.[web.archive.org] Occasionally, however, females who carry a DMD gene mutation may have muscle weakness and cramping.[web.archive.org]

  • Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

    Occasionally, however, females who carry a DMD gene mutation may have muscle weakness and cramping.[ghr.nlm.nih.gov] This can result in trouble standing-up. Most are unable to walk by the age of twelve. Affected muscles may look larger due to increased fat content.[dbpedia.org] Children with Duchenne may be slower to sit, stand or walk. Most are unable to run and jump properly due to weakness in the core muscles of the body.[duchenne.com]

  • Polymyalgia Rheumatica

    There is no true muscle weakness nor evidence of muscle disease on electromyography (EMG) or on biopsy.[healthcentral.com] Snapshot A 60-year-old woman presents to her physician's office for headache and muscle weakness.[step2.medbullets.com] Unlike RA, however, muscle weakness and atrophy are usually absent, and the range of motion of joints is usually normal for the age.[healthcentral.com]

  • 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] Patients may be unable to stand or walk despite reasonable strength, especially when ophthalmoparesis or impaired proprioception is present.[emedicine.medscape.com] A medical exam may show muscle weakness. There may also be problems with blood pressure and heart rate.[medlineplus.gov]

  • Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy

    However, most patients in the current family showed distal as well as proximal limb weakness rather than weakness of toe and finger flexor muscles that were typical features[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] They are usually unable to stand without using their own body to steady themselves and, as such, present with Gower’s sign (where patients use their own hands to push off[lecturio.com] Progressive proximal muscle weakness began again at age 8 years. Serum CK was 14,910 IU/L. She was wheelchair-bound by age 12.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Spinal Muscular Atrophy

    We report the case of a male who presented in infancy with motor delay and muscle weakness.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Children can sit without support but are unable to stand or walk unaided. Children also may have respiratory difficulties.[ninds.nih.gov] 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.[ninds.nih.gov]

  • Polymyositis

    Some cases of polymyositis have manifestations of muscle weakness in the orbital muscles. Rare cases also have weaknesses in facial and bulbar muscles.[symptoma.com] Abstract Polymyositis is an idiopathic inflammatory myopathy of unknown aetiology that affect skeletal muscles causing symmetrical, proximal muscle weakness, and also other[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] From Wikidata Jump to navigation Jump to search rare idiopathic inflammatory myopathy characterized by symmetric proximal muscle weakness and elevated muscle enzymes edit[wikidata.org]

  • Dermatomyositis

    Symptoms may include: Muscle weakness, stiffness, or soreness Problems swallowing Purple color to the upper eyelids Purple-red skin rash Shortness of breath The muscle weakness[nlm.nih.gov] Initially, dermatomyositis (DM) was considered because of the erythema, polyarthritis, and muscle weakness.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This patient was diagnosed with dermatomyositis due to the presence of proximal muscle weakness with abnormal electromyography and magnetic resonance imaging findings; skin[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Childhood Dermatomyositis

    In a second flare in childhood, she developed proximal muscle weakness and calcinosis cutis. A muscle biopsy was consistent with juvenile dermatomyositis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] All responders routinely used proximal muscle weakness and characteristic skin rash in the diagnosis of JDM, while 86.8% used elevated muscle enzymes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] weakness and raised muscle enzymes in any proposed diagnostic criteria.[rheumatology.oxfordjournals.org]

  • Poliomyelitis

    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] It is characterized by new muscle weakness seen in survivors of acute poliomyelitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] weakness or abnormal muscle fatigability, and the exclusion of other causes of new symptoms.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
