  • Disease
  • So, it is possible that muscle will behave as though it has lost its nerve supply in severe demyelinating disease, including the severe demyelinating form of Guillain-Barre Syndrome. (ifess.org)
  • I will say this in regard to that fear about my muscle weakness, that I've had it far too long to be caused by a neuromuscular motor neuron disease. (medhelp.org)
  • Diffuse disease affecting the peripheral nerves may have a greater impact on either motor or sensory fibres, or it may affect both to an equal degree. (britannica.com)
  • In other cases, individual nerves are affected as a result of compression or vascular disease. (britannica.com)
  • Examples of common conditions causing neck pain are degenerative disc disease, neck strain, neck injury such as in whiplash, a herniated disc, or a pinched nerve. (medicinenet.com)
  • Examples of these medical conditions include kidney disease, adrenal gland insufficiency, excessive breakdown of muscles, tumor cells or red blood cells, and any disorder causing your blood to be more acidic than usual. (livestrong.com)
  • compression
  • Figure 5 (left): MRI of a patient with a facet cyst (shown by he green arrow) causing compression of nerves. (hss.edu)
  • fatigue
  • Do any of you experience muscle weakness specifically, with your dysautonomic conditions (rather than fatigue alone)? (medhelp.org)
  • Don't know if my NCS attributes to it along w/ my MS. (Yes, I have MS). AND my muscles also get fatigued as well as fatigue easily (hope that makes sense). (medhelp.org)
  • twitches
  • Excederine works wonderfully for me when, on the rare occasion that I DO get a headache (I know it's full of avoids, but it still works really well, so I take it), but it's chock full of caffeine, so I will usually get some eye twitches or muscle twitches after a day or two of taking it.

  • pain
  • In addition to pain, you may have leg muscle weakness, or knee or ankle reflex loss. (mayfieldclinic.com)
  • This material may bulge or rupture through a tear in the disc wall, causing pain when it touches a nerve. (mayfieldclinic.com)
  • Pain associated with this nerve is described in various ways such as the following: sensation of wearing an invisible "glove" or "sock", burning, freezing, or electric-like, extreme sensitivity to touch. (thefullwiki.org)
  • OP, Without a nerve conduction study it is almost impossible to tell what's causing your pain. (bikeforums.net)
  • I am particularly interested in regional anesthesia, the specific application of local anesthetics and adjuvants at the site of peripheral nerves, in the context of producing target-specific pain relief. (stanford.edu)
  • These injuries refer to the stinging, burning, and shocking pain experienced when nerves in the neck are compressed or stretched beyond their limits. (doctorshealthpress.com)
  • This pinched nerve may present muscle weakness as well as pain. (doctorshealthpress.com)
  • Pain and hyperalgesia are witnessed in the area of nerve distribution, along with tenderness on palpation of the nerve trunk and muscles supplied by the nerve. (chiro.org)
  • weak
  • Breathing muscles , such as the diaphragm, may also become weak, reducing the ability to breathe and causing shortness of breath. (livestrong.com)
  • motor
  • In some conditions, it is possible to have involvement of the nerve pathways in the spinal cord and loss of the lower motor neuron. (ifess.org)
  • In spinal cord injury, for example, there is an injury to the spinal cord with a zone of injury in which the motor nerve cells in the cord may be destroyed. (ifess.org)
  • In addition, motor nerve cells in the cord below the zone of injury may be lost because of an alteration in circulation or a secondary site of injury. (ifess.org)
  • Because the motor nerve is blocked, but remains anatomically intact, stimulation can be accomplished easily and comfortably. (ifess.org)
  • If there is partial loss of motor nerve supply to the muscle, or partial denervation, it is necessary to wait for reinnervation of the muscle before setting goals for muscle improvement. (ifess.org)
  • Both diseases affect motor nerve functions. (nytimes.com)
  • Many of the diseases of the peripheral nervous system may present similarly to muscle problems ( myopathies ), and so it is important to develop approaches for assessing sensory and motor disturbances in patients so that a physician may make an accurate diagnosis. (thefullwiki.org)
  • Mononeuritis multiplex typically presents with acute or subacute loss of sensory and motor function of individual peripheral nerves . (thefullwiki.org)
  • diseases
  • While many neuromuscular diseases can result in an ICU admission, there are a limited number of disorders that produce acquired weakness during the course of ICU care. (renalandurologynews.com)
  • complications
  • The generalized weakness often seen in patients who have survived critical illness can prevent participation in rehabilitation, prolong time on the ventilator and prolong hospitalization, and can lead to secondary complications of pressure ulcers and prolonged periods of dependency.
