749 Possible Causes for Upper Limb Weakness

  • Glycogen Storage Disease Type 2

    Limb-girdle weakness is a prominent finding. Respiratory muscle involvement is a hallmark of Pompe disease. Lukacs Z, Nieves Cobos P, Mengel E, et al.[emedicine.medscape.com] Particular muscle groups may be affected, such as the upper arms and pectoral muscles. Asymmetry of affected muscle groups may be present.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis 6

    Affected individuals claim muscle weakness, most commonly in the upper limbs and neck, or in the legs.[symptoma.com] Over the course of the disease, they develop muscle weakness and atrophy in all four limbs, and possibly bulbar palsy associated with dysarthria and dysphagia.[symptoma.com] Muscle weakness subsequently spreads to the other limbs and bulbar muscles may become involved.[symptoma.com]

  • Hyperventilation

    […] both upper limbs within three days.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A five-months-pregnant female of the age 25 years presented with sudden onset flaccid weakness of both lower limbs associated with thigh muscle pain followed by weakness of[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Fracture

    PATIENTS CONCERNS: A 47-year-old woman felt neck pain with weakness and numbness in both upper limbs for 5 months.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Chronic Alcoholism

    He presented with bilateral, proximal upper and lower limb weakness, limb girdle wasting, bilaterally reduced Achilles tendon reflexes, and bilateral stocking-type sensory[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Birth

    Abstract A 5-year-old child presented to us with weakness of the left upper limb since birth.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Scoliosis

    RESULTS: TcEMEPs from upper and lower limbs rapidly showed significant drops in amplitude after the injection of clonidine.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Amplitudes reached minimal values within five minutes and remained very weak for at least 10-20minutes during which monitoring of the central motor pathways was severely compromised[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Monomelic Amyotrophy

    The index case presented with left upper limb weakness and wasting of 3 years duration while his mother had right upper limb amyotrophy and weakness of 34 years.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] limb weakness (with muscular atrophy)-two of them with distal and one with proximal localization.[biomedsearch.com] CONCLUSIONS: Patients with MMA are predominantly young males with upper limb wasting and weakness. MRI of the cervical cord is normal in most of the patients (67.9%).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Multifocal Motor Neuropathy

    Abstract Multifocal motor neuropathy (MMN) is typically associated with distal upper limb weakness and wasting.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The initial high-dose intravenous immunoglobulin treatment significantly improved left upper limb muscle weakness.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract Multifocal motor neuropathy (MMN) is a unique disorder characterized by slowly progressive, asymmetric, distal and upper limb predominant weakness without significant[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Neuropathy

    Length-dependent peripheral neuropathy symptoms make a slow ascent of leg, while symptoms may never appear in the upper limbs; if they do, it will be around the time that[en.wikipedia.org] Sensory symptoms generally develop before motor symptoms such as weakness.[en.wikipedia.org]
