256 Possible Causes for Quadriceps Muscle Weakness, Tachycardia

  • Hyperthyroidism

    Fetal tachycardia was detected at 17 wk in the fourth pregnancy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The fetuses were considered in hyperthyroid status based on high levels of maternal TRAb, a goiter, and persistent tachycardia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract Prenatal ultrasonography of a pregnant woman with a past history of total thyroidectomy for Graves' disease detected fetal tachycardia, fetal growth restriction and[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Graves Disease

    We present the case of a previously well 43 year old woman who presented in supraventricular tachycardia and acute pulmonary edema and died despite treatment and without a[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Physical examination shows tachycardia (108 bpm), distal tremors and diffuse goiter.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We report a 17-year-old male patient who presented with chest pain, dyspnea, and tachycardia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Retroperitoneal Hematoma

    On arrival, the patient had hypotension, tachycardia, tachypnea, low-grade fever, and Glasgow Coma Scale score of 12.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Four hours later the patient complained of back pain radiating to her left calf, with weakness of the quadriceps muscle.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Non-specific symptoms such tachycardia, hypotension, and anaemia are the most prevalent in this complication.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Diabetic Autonomic Neuropathy

    Cardiac autonomic neuropathy (CAN) has been linked to resting tachycardia, postural hypotension, orthostatic bradycardia and orthostatic tachycardia (POTTS), exercise intolerance[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Bilateral thigh pain or weakness with atrophy of the iliopsoas, quadriceps, and adductor muscles also may be present.[aafp.org] Physical examination is likely to indicate variability in heart rate (resting tachycardia followed by bradycardia and later a fixed heart rate).[symptoma.com]

  • Hypokalemia

    A 38-year-old obese woman presented with recurrent polymorphic ventricular tachycardia secondary to persistent hypokalemia necessitating more than 40 DC shocks.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] RESULTS: Neurological examination showed a lower extremity muscle weakness with three-fifths muscular strength of the quadriceps and tibialis anterior muscle on both sides[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] QT interval may be seen, which is actually the QU interval with an absent T wave. 1 Severe hypokalemia can also cause a variety of tachyarrhythmias, including ventricular tachycardia[doi.org]

  • Osteoarthritis of the Knee

    Two dose limiting toxicities (DLTs), increased pain following injection and paroxysmal tachycardia (also the single serious AE), were reported in the 0.07 mg cohort.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In conclusion, the use of NMES for quadriceps muscle weakness has been shown to improve muscle strength.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Pain in the knee joint can lead to wasting and weakness of the Quadriceps (thigh) muscles.[physioroom.com]

  • Retroperitoneal Hemorrhage

    On admission, the patient was in shock state, having tachycardia and tachypnea.[omicsonline.org] Neurologic examination revealed weakness of the right quadriceps muscle and thigh adductors and a depressed knee jerk and loss of sensation on the anteromedial thigh and in[nejm.org] Femoral neuropathy is a well known complication of RPH, usually resulting in weakness of the iliopsoas (hip flexion) and quadriceps (knee extension) muscles and dysesthesia[benthamopen.com]

  • Hyperkalemic Periodic Paralysis

    […] commmon; Occasional ventricular tachycardia Weight loss Nausea & Vomiting Difficulty with micturition Course: Resolves without morbidity after treatment of thyroid disease[neuromuscular.wustl.edu] Investigations A left quadriceps muscle biopsy done at the age of 30 was reported to be normal as were serum potassium and creatine kinase between attacks.[jnnp.bmj.com] Hyperkalemia can cause cardiac arrhythmia, usually tachycardia, and typical ECG abnormalities (i.e., T-wave elevation, disappearance of P waves).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Glycogen Storage Disease due to Phosphoglucomutase Deficiency

    16 families PGM1 genetics Inheritance: Recessive Mutations: Arg503X; Gly121Arg Allelic with: PGM1 deficiency Clinical Onset age: Childhood Cardiomyopathy (30%): Dilated; Tachycardia[neuromuscular.wustl.edu] weakness Other Ptosis (23%): Normal EOM; May be asymmetric Bulbar (28%) Relatively spared: Quadriceps; Distal muscles Disease course: Progression 30 Slow, over years Severity[neuromuscular.wustl.edu] Second wind" phenomenon: Brief rest after myalgias allows further activity 7 Sudden, marked improvement in exercise capacity Exercise that previously produced muscle fatigue, tachycardia[neuromuscular.wustl.edu]

  • Powassan Encephalitis

    He has almost fully recovered except for minor residual weakness of the quadriceps muscles.[bmcresnotes.biomedcentral.com] However, upon his last follow up at four months after his hospitalization he continued to have quadriceps muscle weakness and requires use of arm to get up from chair and[bmcresnotes.biomedcentral.com] Our fourth patient had the least of the manifestations of POWV encephalitis having mainly headaches and non-focal weakness.[bmcresnotes.biomedcentral.com]
