105 Possible Causes for Pharyngeal Spasm

  • Glossopharyngeal Neuralgia

    The symptoms of sensitivity to food and oesophageal spasms could be due to Acid reflux.[medhelp.org] Pharyngeal motor evoked potentials elicited by transcranial electrical stimulation for intraoperative monitoring during skull base surgery.[surgicalneurologyint.com] 8 Responses Hi, The signs and symptoms of Glossopharyngeal neuralgia include Throat pain, Ear pain , Pain in base of tongue and Pharyngeal pain.[medhelp.org]

  • Rabies

    Eight years after emigrating from Brazil, an otherwise healthy man developed rabies. An exposure prior to immigration was reported. Genetic analysis revealed a canine rabies virus variant found only in the patient's home country, and the patient had not traveled internationally since immigrating to the United States.[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pharyngeal Disease

    Pharyngeal paralysis Pharyngeal spasm Pharyngeal stenosis Pharyngeal ulcer Pharyngitis keratosa Pharyngocutaneous fistula Pharynx or nasopharynx abscess Spasm of the cricopharyngeus[icd9data.com] […] airway Nasopharyngeal edema Nasopharyngeal lesion Nasopharyngeal mass Oropharyngeal lesion Pharyngeal disease Pharyngeal edema Pharyngeal spasm Spasm of the cricopharyngeus[icd10data.com] […] diverticulum Perforation of pharynx Pharyngeal abscess Pharyngeal bursitis Pharyngeal diverticulitis Pharyngeal dryness Pharyngeal gag reflex positive Pharyngeal hemorrhage[icd9data.com]

  • Muscle Spasm

    A retrospective review was made of 62 patients between 1991 and 2002 who had Botox as the initial treatment for pharyngeal constrictor muscle spasm.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The purpose of the study was to evaluate the effectiveness of Botulinum neurotoxin (Botox) for elimination of pharyngeal constrictor muscle spasm in tracheoesophageal voice[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Botox relaxation of the pharyngeal constrictor muscles has proven to be effective, has replaced secondary pharyngeal myotomy for the initial treatment of pharyngeal muscle[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Dantrolene

    Causality analysis determined a probable relationship between dantrolene and pharyngeal spasm.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] After 5 days of full-dose dantrolene, his dysphagia worsened and he developed pharyngeal spasm. Dantrolene was suspected for an adverse reaction and removed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We instead describe a pharyngeal spasm due to dantrolene. A 12-year-old male received dantrolene 3 mg/kg/day in adjunct to baclofen 2 mg/kg/day, to improve spasticity.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Uvula Abnormal

    (Selner slide #43) Pharyngeal spasm in a patient complaining of tightness of the throat due to exposure to copy machine chemicals and carbonless copy paper.[augusta.edu] The diameter of the oropharynx has been remarkably reduced by spasm of the pharyngeal constrictor muscles. At the base of the slide, the lingual tonsils are compressed.[augusta.edu]

  • Scorpion Envenomation

    spasm (cannot control much of the mouth) 15)drowsiness Many of the symptoms are sometimes due to or aggravated by victim's shock and anxiety.[members.tripod.com] Dysphagia, dysarthria, and stridor occur secondary to pharyngeal reflex loss or muscle spasm. Patients may present with excessive salivation and drooling.[emedicine.medscape.com] […] respiration sound) 9) blurred vision 10)roving eye movement 11)oculogyric crisis (cannot control eye movement) 12)slurred speech 13)dysphagia (cannot swallow properly) 14)pharyngeal[members.tripod.com]

  • Foreign Body in the Pharynx

    The sensation of a lump in the throat, unrelated to swallowing food or drink, may be globus hystericus, which is related to crico- pharyngeal spasm and anxiety.[ncemi.org]
