587 Possible Causes for Muscle Weakness, Waddling Gait

  • Muscular Dystrophy

    This leads to damaged muscle fibres and to muscle weakness. Depending on the exact type of faulty gene and faulty protein, different types of muscle weakness result.[patient.info] Parents may first see that their three-to-five year old child frequently falls, runs slowly, walks on his toes or has a waddling gait.[kennedykrieger.org] Symptoms include: Difficulty walking, such as lateness in learning how to walk (older than 18 months), having a waddling gait, or walking on the toes or balls of the feet[orthoinfo.aaos.org]

  • Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

    Generally, proximal muscle weakness is noticed earlier followed by distal muscle weakness.[symptoma.com] At age 4 he had a waddling gait and could no longer climb stairs.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Additional early signs and symptoms include: Developmental delay Muscle weakness Clumsiness Waddling gait Difficulty or inability to perform activities such as climbing stairs[pfizer.com]

  • Hypophosphatasia

    Clinical trials are revealing aspects of HPP pathophysiology not yet fully understood, such as craniosynostosis and muscle weakness when HPP is severe.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] gait.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Young children and infants affected with severe forms of HPP, but also adults often present with myopathy characterized by hypotonia or muscle weakness.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Mucopolysaccharidosis

    Nursing Diagnosis - Self care deficit related to inability to carryout ADLS / tremors - Impaired physical mobility related to weakness of bones and muscles - Risk for injury[slideshare.net] gait, and laxity of joints.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Twelve patients had a waddling gait. Four patients were partially wheelchair-dependent and ten patients had limitations in their maximum walking distance.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Myasthenia Gravis

    Proximal muscle weakness is more often seen than distal muscle weakness.[symptoma.com] Other symptoms may include: weakness in muscles used for chewing, swallowing and talking severe fatigue an unstable or waddling gait arm weakness resulting in an inability[muscle.ca] Symptoms vary among patients, but can include: A drooping of one or both the eyelids (ptosis) Blurred or double vision Unstable or "waddling" gait Weakness in the arms or[my.clevelandclinic.org]

  • Lambert Eaton Myasthenic Syndrome

    The muscle weakness often improves with physical exercise, which distinguishes this syndrome from myasthenia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Physical Examination Strength is usually reduced in proximal muscles of the legs and arms, producing a waddling gait and difficulty elevating the arms.[emedicine.medscape.com] A reduction in strength in the proximal muscles of the arms and legs, producing a, 'waddling,' gait and trouble with raising the arms.[disabled-world.com]

  • Facioscapulohumeral Muscular Dystrophy

    Although muscle weakness is a hallmark of facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy (FSHD), the molecular mechanisms that lead to weakness in FSHD remain largely unknown.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Mater diagnosed with atypical muscle dystrophy, when she was twenty-four years old, based on weakness of lower limb muscles, incomplett foot dorsalflexion and waddling gait[pubs.sciepub.com] Disease progression may lead to involvement of abdominal and pelvic muscles, causing lumbar hyperlordosis and a waddling gait.[bmjopen.bmj.com]

  • Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy

    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] We report a Saudi Arabian family with weakness in limb-girdle distribution: waddling gait, positive Gowers' sign, and marked muscle atrophy in the shoulder and pelvic girdle[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Generally, the first symptom that people with limb-girdle muscular dystrophy will notice is muscle weakness that causes trouble walking, resulting in a "waddling" gait and[sharecare.com]

  • Congenital Hip Dysplasia

    Limping due to leg-length discrepancy and weakness of pelvic muscles. Clinical examination. Limping Clinical examination. Abductor muscle weakness.[goudelis.gr] gait.[healthpoint.co.nz] Ambulatory children: Often present after a leg-length discrepancy, limp, or waddling gait is noticed.[now.aapmr.org]
