556 Possible Causes for Myalgia, Proximal Muscle Weakness

  • Polymyositis

    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] We expose the case of a young woman (47 years old) who presented to the Pulmonology Clinic with fever, cough, purulent sputum, discrete myalgia, being diagnosed at that moment[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This report highlights the case of a 30-year-old male who had severe myalgia and proximal muscle weakness.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Childhood Dermatomyositis

    Abstract A 62-year-old woman presented to the emergency department with malaise, lethargy and proximal muscle weakness. She had a similar presentation in childhood.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Dysphagia, myositis-specific or -related antibodies, factor VIII-related (von Willebrand) antigen, myalgia, muscle ultrasound and ulcerations had a median score of 4.[rheumatology.oxfordjournals.org] Typical MRI and muscle biopsy changes were rated by all to be the most useful clinically relevant diagnostic criteria after proximal muscle weakness, characteristic skin rash[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Dermatomyositis

    Later she developed progressive, symmetrical proximal muscle weakness.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Within a month after the operation, myalgia and rash, including Gottron's papules, developed, and skeletal-muscle enzymes elevated, so she was diagnosed with probable DM according[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We diagnosed DM based on the presence of myalgia, Gottron's papules, and anti-aminoacyl-tRNA synthetase antibody positivity in the patient.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Polymyalgia Rheumatica

    Over time, disuse of muscle causes atrophy with proximal muscle weakness.[uspharmacist.com] The headache and myalgia were improving with corticosteroid treatment; however, a trans-sphenoidal surgery was performed due to visual field loss.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] It typically causes severe pain and stiffness in proximal muscles, without weakness or atrophy, and nonspecific systemic symptoms.[msdmanuals.com]

  • Glycogen Storage Disease Type 2

    Progressive proximal muscle weakness including major impairment of respiratory function dominates the picture.[ommbid.mhmedical.com] […] glycogen metabolism affecting muscle alone or together with other tissues, and they cause two main clinical syndromes: episodic, recurrent exercise intolerance with cramps, myalgia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] , myoglobinuria "Second wind" phenomenom rapid relief of fatigue and myalgia secondary to increase blood flow, improved free fatty acid delivery, and liver glucose utilization[medbullets.com]

  • Inclusion Body Myositis

    […] by proximal, upper-extremity weakness and later involvement of distal muscles groups.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The unexpected appearance of myalgia during the course of painless inclusion body myositis must arouse the suspicion of an association of another inflammatory muscle disease[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract We report a 17-year-old girl with an unusual neuromuscular disorder characterised by slowly progressive proximal muscle weakness whose muscle biopsy showed multiple[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hypokalemic Periodic Paralysis

    She developed significant proximal muscle weakness within 16 hours after the initial dose. Her serum potassium was 1.6 mEq/L.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Postcritic myalgias were reported in 18 patients with Arg528His and one patient with Arg669His in whom the myalgias could last from several minutes to hours.[dx.doi.org] Neurological examination revealed proximal muscle weakness and generalized hyporeflexia. There was no sensory abnormality and bowel or bladder involvement.[ispub.com]

  • Vitamin D Deficiency

    Abstract A young woman with severe vitamin D deficiency presented with proximal muscle weakness, fragility fracture and pseudoarthrosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Myalgias associated with statin therapy may also resolve with correction of vitamin D deficiency.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract We report a four-year-old African boy referred for proximal muscle weakness, fatigability and episodic limb pain.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis

    To that end, the examiner should look for sclerodactily, scleroderma, proximal muscle weakness and telangiectasias. The history should exclude Raynaud's phenomenon.[doi.org] Constitutional symptoms, such as low-grade fever and myalgias, are uncommon. The classic sign of IPF is fine, dry, inspiratory crackles (Velcro crackles) at both bases.[merckmanuals.com] Some nonspecific, systemic symptoms like weight loss, fever, and myalgia also may be present.[symptoma.com]

  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    muscle weakness of the lower extremities.[emedicine.medscape.com] Suspected Zika virus disease was defined as a history of rash and 2 other Zika-related symptoms (fever, arthralgia, myalgia, or conjunctivitis).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] proportion of case-patients (83%) compared to controls (21%) reported an antecedent illness (OR 18.1, CI 6.9-47.5), most commonly characterized by rash, headache, fever, and myalgias[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
