  • Radial Nerve Palsy

    These included sensations of popping, paresthesias, and paresis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Sensory alterations, such as paresthesias and dysesthesias, are not present.[symptoma.com] Lateral epicondylitis can cause similar tenderness around the lateral epicondyle but does not cause the Tinel sign (paresthesia elicited by percussion over a nerve) or tenderness[msdmanuals.com]

  • Myelopathy

    Here, we reported a patient of N2O induced subacute combined degeneration (SCD) with longitudinally extensive myelopathy with inverted V-sign exhibiting progressive limb paresthesia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Examination reveals a positive finger-escape sign, and he is unable to make a fist and release 10 times in 10 seconds.[orthobullets.com] A 54-year-old man presented with subacute onset of lower extremity weakness, paresthesias, and gait dysfunction.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cervical Cord Compression

    Paresthesias and weakness eventually arise. A more severe form of cervical cord compression leads to inadequate sphincter control and paralysis.[symptoma.com] Examination reveals a positive finger-escape sign, and he is unable to make a fist and release 10 times in 10 seconds.[orthobullets.com] Symptoms CSM can cause a variety of symptoms, including: a tingling, prickling or "pins and needles" sensation (paresthesia); numbness; weakness, difficulty lifting objects[shorelineortho.com]
