299 Possible Causes for Proximal Muscle Weakness, Unable to Stand

  • Polymyalgia Rheumatica

    Although there was no evidence of proximal muscle weakness, EMG was done which was reported as normal.[omjournal.org] Over time, disuse of muscle causes atrophy with proximal muscle weakness.[uspharmacist.com] […] reports of PMR describe a sudden onset of proximal muscle weakness, stiffness, malaise and low-grade fever.[prescriber.co.uk]

  • Vitamin D Deficiency

    […] to stand.[doi.org] We report a four-year-old African boy referred for proximal muscle weakness, fatigability and episodic limb pain.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A young woman with severe vitamin D deficiency presented with proximal muscle weakness, fragility fracture and pseudoarthrosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy

    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] Moreover, polymyositis (PM) is manifested as symmetrical proximal muscle weakness of the four limbs, accompanied by an increased level of serum CK.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    Patients may be unable to stand or walk despite reasonable strength, especially when ophthalmoparesis or impaired proprioception is present.[emedicine.medscape.com] Proximal muscle weakness very frequent, especially initially, with subsequent distal arm and leg weakness. ii.[physio-pedia.com] muscle weakness of the lower extremities.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Polymyositis

  • Dermatomyositis

    Later she developed progressive, symmetrical proximal muscle weakness.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The prevailing clinical manifestations are intense erythema, typically around the eyes and dorsum of the hands, accompanied by proximal muscle weakness.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The proximal muscle weakness, dysphagia and presence of Gottron's papules as well poikiloderma like skin changes led to the clinical diagnosis of dermatomyositis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Childhood Dermatomyositis

    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] 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[doi.org] 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]

  • Autosomal Recessive Lower Motor Neuron Disease with Childhood Onset

    Unable to stand 2 years SMA 3 Kugelberg-Welander disease 18 months-3 years Able to stand and walk Adult SMA 4 Adult Able to stand and walk Adult SMA muscle SMA.[neuropathology-web.org] Muscle weakness may spread from the proximal muscles to affect distal muscles.[rarediseases.org] Standing is also a very important part of a physical management programme for many individuals with neuromuscular conditions, even if you are unable to walk independently.[smasupportuk.org.uk]

  • Autosomal Recessive Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy Type 2T

    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] Muscle weakness may spread from the proximal muscles to affect distal muscles.[rarediseases.org] Gradually, patients are unable to stand on toes and calf muscles are wasted [Figure 1] a.[annalsofian.org]

  • Autosomal Recessive Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy Type 2J

    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] LGMD 2A (calpain 3) Childhood (8-15) There is mainly proximal muscle weakness. There is slow progression.[patient.info] Gradually, patients are unable to stand on toes and calf muscles are wasted [Figure 1] a.[annalsofian.org]
