Acquired, familial, and congenital disorders of SKELETAL MUSCLE and SMOOTH MUSCLE.
The act, process, or result of passing from one place or position to another. It differs from LOCOMOTION in that locomotion is restricted to the passing of the whole body from one place to another, while movement encompasses both locomotion but also a change of the position of the whole body or any of its parts. Movement may be used with reference to humans, vertebrate and invertebrate animals, and microorganisms. Differentiate also from MOTOR ACTIVITY, movement associated with behavior.
The position or attitude of the body.
The human being as a non-anatomical and non-zoological entity. The emphasis is on the philosophical or artistic treatment of the human being, and includes lay and social attitudes toward the body in history. (From J. Cassedy, NLM History of Medicine Division)
Contractile tissue that produces movement in animals.
An eleven-amino acid neurotransmitter that appears in both the central and peripheral nervous systems. It is involved in transmission of PAIN, causes rapid contractions of the gastrointestinal smooth muscle, and modulates inflammatory and immune responses.
A subtype of striated muscle, attached by TENDONS to the SKELETON. Skeletal muscles are innervated and their movement can be consciously controlled. They are also called voluntary muscles.
The protein constituents of muscle, the major ones being ACTINS and MYOSINS. More than a dozen accessory proteins exist including TROPONIN; TROPOMYOSIN; and DYSTROPHIN.
A general term encompassing lower MOTOR NEURON DISEASE; PERIPHERAL NERVOUS SYSTEM DISEASES; and certain MUSCULAR DISEASES. Manifestations include MUSCLE WEAKNESS; FASCICULATION; muscle ATROPHY; SPASM; MYOKYMIA; MUSCLE HYPERTONIA, myalgias, and MUSCLE HYPOTONIA.
A heterogeneous group of inherited MYOPATHIES, characterized by wasting and weakness of the SKELETAL MUSCLE. They are categorized by the sites of MUSCLE WEAKNESS; AGE OF ONSET; and INHERITANCE PATTERNS.
An X-linked recessive muscle disease caused by an inability to synthesize DYSTROPHIN, which is involved with maintaining the integrity of the sarcolemma. Muscle fibers undergo a process that features degeneration and regeneration. Clinical manifestations include proximal weakness in the first few years of life, pseudohypertrophy, cardiomyopathy (see MYOCARDIAL DISEASES), and an increased incidence of impaired mentation. Becker muscular dystrophy is a closely related condition featuring a later onset of disease (usually adolescence) and a slowly progressive course.

Neuromuscular disorder characterized by PROGRESSIVE MUSCULAR ATROPHY; MYOTONIA, and various multisystem atrophies. Mild INTELLECTUAL DISABILITY may also occur. Abnormal TRINUCLEOTIDE REPEAT EXPANSION in the 3' UNTRANSLATED REGIONS of DMPK PROTEIN gene is associated with Myotonic Dystrophy 1. DNA REPEAT EXPANSION of zinc finger protein-9 gene intron is associated with Myotonic Dystrophy 2.
An autosomal dominant degenerative muscle disease characterized by slowly progressive weakness of the muscles of the face, upper-arm, and shoulder girdle. The onset of symptoms usually occurs in the first or second decade of life. Affected individuals usually present with impairment of upper extremity elevation. This tends to be followed by facial weakness, primarily involving the orbicularis oris and orbicularis oculi muscles. (Neuromuscul Disord 1997;7(1):55-62; Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1420)
A specific pair of GROUP B CHROMOSOMES of the human chromosome classification.
A muscle protein localized in surface membranes which is the product of the Duchenne/Becker muscular dystrophy gene. Individuals with Duchenne muscular dystrophy usually lack dystrophin completely while those with Becker muscular dystrophy have dystrophin of an altered size. It shares features with other cytoskeletal proteins such as SPECTRIN and alpha-actinin but the precise function of dystrophin is not clear. One possible role might be to preserve the integrity and alignment of the plasma membrane to the myofibrils during muscle contraction and relaxation. MW 400 kDa.
A group of disorders marked by progressive degeneration of motor neurons in the spinal cord resulting in weakness and muscular atrophy, usually without evidence of injury to the corticospinal tracts. Diseases in this category include Werdnig-Hoffmann disease and later onset SPINAL MUSCULAR ATROPHIES OF CHILDHOOD, most of which are hereditary. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1089)
A group of recessively inherited diseases that feature progressive muscular atrophy and hypotonia. They are classified as type I (Werdnig-Hoffman disease), type II (intermediate form), and type III (Kugelberg-Welander disease). Type I is fatal in infancy, type II has a late infantile onset and is associated with survival into the second or third decade. Type III has its onset in childhood, and is slowly progressive.

Toxic oil syndrome mortality: the first 13 years. (1/1572)

BACKGROUND: The toxic oil syndrome (TOS) epidemic that occurred in Spain in the spring of 1981 caused approximately 20000 cases of a new illness. Overall mortality and mortality by cause in this cohort through 1994 are described for the first time in this report. METHODS: We contacted, via mail or telephone, almost every living member of the cohort and family members of those who were known to have died in order to identify all deaths from 1 May 1981 through 31 December 1994. Cause of death data were collected from death certificates and underlying causes of death were coded using the International Classification of Diseases, 9th Revision. RESULTS: We identified 1663 deaths between 1 May 1981 and 31 December 1994 among 19 754 TOS cohort members, for a crude mortality rate of 8.4%. Mortality was highest during 1981, with a standardized mortality ratio (SMR) of 4.92 (95% confidence interval [CI]: 4.39-5.50) compared with the Spanish population as a whole. The highest SMR, (20.41, 95% CI: 15.97-25.71) was seen among women aged 20-39 years during the period from 1 May 1981 through 31 December 1982. Women <40 years old, who were affected by TOS , were at greater risk for death in most time periods than their unaffected peers, while older women and men were not. Over the follow-up period, mortality of the cohort was less than expected when compared with mortality of the general Spanish population, or with mortality of the population of the 14 provinces where the epidemic occurred. We also found that, except for deaths attributed to external causes including TOS and deaths due to pulmonary hypertension, all causes of death were decreased in TOS patients compared to the Spanish population. The most frequent underlying causes of death were TOS, 350 (21.1%); circulatory disorders, 536 (32.3%); and malignancies, 310 (18.7%). CONCLUSIONS: We conclude that while on average people affected by toxic oil syndrome are not at greater risk for death over the 13-year study period than any of the comparison groups, women <40 years old were at greater risk of death.  (+info)

Wasting of the small hand muscles in upper and mid-cervical cord lesions. (2/1572)

Four patients are described with destructive rheumatoid arthritis of the cervical spine and neurogenic wasting of forearm and hand muscles. The pathological connection is not immediately obvious, but a relationship between these two observations is described here with clinical, radiological, electrophysiological and necropsy findings. Compression of the anterior spinal artery at upper and mid-cervical levels is demonstrated to be the likely cause of changes lower in the spinal cord. These are shown to be due to the resulting ischaemia of the anterior part of the lower cervical spinal cord, with degeneration of the neurones innervating the forearm and hand muscles. These findings favour external compression of the anterior spinal artery leading to ischaemia in a watershed area as the likeliest explanation for this otherwise inappropriate and bizarre phenomenon.  (+info)

Obturator internus muscle abscess in children: report of seven cases and review. (3/1572)

Obturator internus muscle (OIM) abscess is an uncommon entity often mistaken for septic arthritis of the hip. We describe seven children with OIM abscess and review seven previously reported cases. The most common presenting symptoms were hip or thigh pain (14 patients), fever (13), and limp (13). The hip was flexed, abducted, and externally rotated in 11 patients. Magnetic resonance imaging and computed tomography (CT) were diagnostic for OIM abscess in the 14 patients. Associated abscesses were located in the obturator externus muscle (5 patients), psoas muscle (2), and iliac muscle (1). The etiologic agents were Staphylococcus aureus (8 patients), Streptococcus pyogenes (2), Neisseria gonorrhoeae (2), and Enterococcus faecalis (1). Three patients underwent CT-guided percutaneous drainage, and three had surgical drainage. Three patients had ischial osteomyelitis in addition to OIM abscess. The 11 children with uncomplicated OIM abscess were treated for a median of 28 days. All patients had an uneventful recovery.  (+info)

Autosomal dominant myopathy with proximal weakness and early respiratory muscle involvement maps to chromosome 2q. (4/1572)

Two Swedish families with autosomal dominant myopathy, who also had proximal weakness, early respiratory failure, and characteristic cytoplasmic bodies in the affected muscle biopsies, were screened for linkage by means of the human genome screening set (Cooperative Human Linkage Center Human Screening Set/Weber version 6). Most chromosome regions were completely excluded by linkage analysis (LOD score <-2). Linkage to the chromosomal region 2q24-q31 was established. A maximum combined two-point LOD score of 4.87 at a recombination fraction of 0 was obtained with marker D2S1245. Haplotype analysis indicated that the gene responsible for the disease is likely to be located in the 17-cM region between markers D2S2384 and D2S364. The affected individuals from these two families share an identical haplotype, which suggests a common origin.  (+info)

Weakness associated with the pathological presence of lipid in skeletal muscle: a detailed study of a patient with carnitine deficiencey. (5/1572)

A patient with muscular weakness demonstrating pathological lipid accumulation and abnormal mitochondria in skeletal muscle has been studied. The lipid accumulation and mitochondrial changes are thought to be related to the established deficiency of carnitine in this patient's muscle. The symptoms of muscular weakness associated with lipid accumulation in the skeletal muscle in the absence of complaint of muscle cramps or myglobinuria are thought to be diagnostic of carnitine deficiency. The failure of the sarcoplasmic reticulum to accumulate Ca2+ is discussed. The patient's strength responded dramatically when propranolol was added to his steroid therapy.  (+info)

Measurements of muscle strength and performance in children with normal and diseased muscle. (6/1572)

A study has been made of two simple means of measuring muscle power in children with normal and diseased muscle. In one the length of time that the leg and the head could be held at 45 degrees above the horizontal was measured with the child supine. In the second, measurements were made of the isometric strength of six muscle groups with the newly developed Hammersmith Myometer. In the timed performance tests only 5 (8%) of a group of 61 children known to have muscle disease achieved the minimum expected values for their ages. Myometer readings of the isometric power of the children with muscle disease also have values which were below those of a comparable group of normal children. The reproducibility of muscle strength measurements in young children has been shown to be good, whereas the timed performance tests, though able to differentiate normal children from children with muscle disease, did not show sufficient reporducibility for this test to be recommended for sequential measurements.  (+info)

Calcific myonecrosis. (7/1572)

Calcific myonecrosis is a rare and late sequela of compartment syndrome, which becomes symptomatic years after the initial trauma. We diagnosed this condition in a 64-year old man, 42 years after he sustained a shot-gun wound to the right lower leg. Total excision of a peripherally calcified, cystic mass, continuous with the anterior tibial muscle belly resulted in complete resolution of symptoms. Consideration of the diagnosis is warranted in patients with a history of major injury who develop a soft tissue mass in the traumatized compartment. The treatment of choice is marginal excision.  (+info)

The prevalence and CT appearance of the levator claviculae muscle: a normal variant not to be mistaken for an abnormality. (8/1572)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The levator claviculae muscle is an infrequently recognized variant in humans, occurring in 2% to 3% of the population, and has rarely been reported in the radiologic or anatomic literature. The importance of this muscle to radiologists is in distinguishing it from an abnormality; most commonly, cervical adenopathy. After discovering this muscle on the CT scans of two patients during routine clinical examinations, we conducted a study to determine the prevalence and appearance of the muscle on CT studies. METHODS: We evaluated 300 CT scans that adequately depicted the expected location of the muscle. The most superior level in which the muscle could be identified and the apparent location of insertion on the clavicle were recorded for all subjects in whom the muscle was detected. RESULTS: Seven levator claviculae muscles were identified in six subjects (2%). It was bilateral in one, on the left in four, and on the right in one. It was identified up to the level of the transverse process of C3 in all cases. The insertion was the middle third of the clavicle for two muscles and the lateral third of the clavicle for the remaining five muscles. CONCLUSION: Because the levator claviculae muscle will most likely be encountered during a radiologist's career, it is important to recognize this muscle as a variant and not as an abnormality.  (+info)

This study will recruit individuals who have had muscle symptoms while using a statin. During the first part of the study, volunteers will be given a statin medication to see if their muscle symptoms return. Those who experience muscle symptoms on this statin rechallenge will be invited to continue in the second part of the trial, in which participants will be randomly assigned to receive either CoQ10 or a placebo (sugar pill) to take with statin medication. We hypothesize that those who receive CoQ10 will experience an improvement in their muscle symptoms compared to those who receive placebo, and, secondarily, that those who receive CoQ10 will be more likely to continue taking the statin medication ...
Hereditary myopathy with early respiratory failure (HMERF) was described in several North European families and recently linked to a titin gene (TTN) mutation. We independently studied HMERF-like diseases with the purpose to identify the cause, refine diagnostic criteria, and estimate the frequency of this disease among myopathy patients of various ethnic origins. Whole exome sequencing analysis was carried out in a large U.S. family that included seven members suffering from skeletal muscle weakness and respiratory failure. Subsequent mutation screening was performed in further 45 unrelated probands with similar phenotypes. Studies included muscle strength evaluation, nerve conduction studies and concentric needle EMG, respiratory function test, cardiologic examination, and muscle biopsy. A novel TTN p.Gly30150Asp mutation was identified in the highly conserved A-band of titin that co-segregated with the disease in the U.S. family. Screening of 45 probands initially diagnosed as myofibrillar myopathy

We show here that talin 1 is crucial for the maintenance of integrin attachment sites at MTJs. Tln1HSA-CREko mice were viable and fertile, but suffered from a progressive myopathy. Whereas integrins and some of their effectors such as FAK, Ilk and vinculin still were localized to muscle attachment sites at costameres and MTJs, MTJs showed structural abnormalities. Defects in the ultrastructure of MTJs, such as decreased interdigitations of muscle and tendon and retraction of myofilaments from electron-dense plaques at the plasma membrane, indicate that in the absence of talin 1 the mechanical connection of actin filaments and integrins at the MTJ was compromised. By contrast, sarcolemmal integrity was largely maintained. Defects in skeletal muscle were prominent in 6- to 7-month-old mice, and were only occasionally noted in 1- to 2-month-old animals, suggesting that the defects were caused by mechanical failure of MTJs under duress. In agreement with this finding, isolated muscle fibers from 7 ...

There are no generally accepted histopathological reference values in paraspinal skeletal muscle biopsies. Methods: We examined multifidii muscle biopsies from 20 neuromuscularly healthy subjects using routine histological stains and biochemical analyses of respiratory chain enzymes. Results: Staining showed incomplete myopathic features, such as increased variability in fiber size, type 1 hypertrophy, rounded fiber shape, endomysial fibrosis, and replacement by adipose tissue. Acid phosphatase reaction was positive in up to 35% of the selected muscle fibers. Mitochondrial changes were obvious but revealed no selective age dependence. Reduced complex I, cytochrome c oxidase (COX), and citrate synthase (CS) could be observed.Conclusions: Because the increased variability in morphological details can easily be misinterpreted as myopathic changes, analysis of paraspinal muscles should take into consideration that incomplete myopathic features and reduced oxidative enzyme activities for complex I, ...

Results:. Alcoholic patients with cardiomyopathy had less muscle strength than did alcoholic patients with normal cardiac function, patients with idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy, and patients with coronary heart disease (all P , 0.01). Among alcoholic patients with cardiomyopathy, 20 of 24 (83%) had histologic findings of skeletal myopathy compared with 1 of 24 (4%) alcoholic patients with normal cardiac function (P , 0.001). Interstitial fibrosis occurred in all cardiac biopsy specimens, hypertrophy of the myocytes occurred in 95%, and myocytolysis occurred in 83%. Those patients with more severe cellular hypertrophy and interstitial fibrosis of the myocardium had a greater decrease in deltoid muscle strength and had worse histologic myopathy. ...

Honestly, based purely on my observations here, the MFM situation with the first doctor is a little unusual. Its actually pretty normal for MFMs to either be a primary doctor by themselves with no regular OB in the picture at all, or MFMs that co-manage with the OB doing the typical OB stuff while the MFM keeps an extra eye on things and directs the plan. Many MFMs dont deliver at all. My personal MFM situation is my MFM can do either, she is comfortable being a primary and delivering her patients, or co-managing (although she confided to me that she will not co-manage with just any old OB, it has to be someone she feels is a quality OB.) Ive not heard of an MFM that co-manages but takes the delivery except in emergencies...I dont really understand the OBs role with the first MFM. In any case, as long as you have an OB that you like and trust to deliver you, as far as my non-expert understanding, theres no reason they cant deliver you whether your pregnancy goes smoothly or not unless ...

Reasons for performing study: Appropriate management of atypical myopathy (AM) requires the establishment of an accurate diagnosis and prognosis. Furthermore, preventive measures to avoid AM need to be refined.. Objectives: The aims of the study were as follows: 1) to improve the diagnosis of AM; 2) to identify prognostic predictors; and 3) to refine recommended preventive measures based on indicators of risk factors.. Methods: An exploratory analysis of cases in Europe between 2006 and 2009 reported to the Atypical Myopathy Alert Group was conducted. Based on clinical data, reported cases were allocated into 2 groups: confirmed or highly probable AM (AM group; further divided into survivors and nonsurvivors); and cases with a low probability of having AM or with another final diagnosis (non-AM group). Using Welchs test and odds ratios corrected for multiple comparisons, the AM vs. non-AM groups were compared to identify indicators for diagnosis and risk factors, and survivors vs. nonsurvivors ...

Mutations in myotilin gene (MYOT) have been associated with variable syndromes including limb girdle muscular dystrophy type 1A (LGMD1A) and a subgroup of myofibrillar myopathy (MFM/MYOT). We studied six Spanish patients from three unrelated kindreds and seven patients without family history. Three previously reported and two novel disease-associated MYOT mutations were identified in this group of patients. The disease is characterized by the onset at the age of 42-77 years with muscle weakness initially in distal or proximal leg muscles, eventually spreading to other muscle groups of the lower and upper extremities. Associated signs of cardiomyopathy, respiratory failure and peripheral neuropathy are present in a fraction of patients. Myopathological features of focal myofibrillar destruction resulting in intracytoplasmic deposits, strongly immunoreactive to myotilin, multiple rimmed and centrally or subsarcolemmally located non-rimmed vacuoles and streaming Z-lines, were observed in each patient
Muscle weakness, abnormal gait and posture, and a decrease in tolerance to exercise are the most common symptoms affecting Labradors with HMLR. On the average, onset of symptoms usually occur at 3-4 months of age, however, some dogs demonstrate symptoms as early as 6-8 weeks or as late as 6-7 months of age. Abnormalities in gait and posture include a short, stilted stride, bunny-hopping, low head posture and an arched back. These symptoms become more obvious as the exercise continues and the dog tires or if the dog is exposed to cold weather. Eventually, if not allowed to rest or to keep warm, the dog may temporarily collapse. Rest improves symptoms but follow-up exercise quickly brings on a relapse. Other signs of HMLR include abnormalities of the joints including splay-foot, cow-hocking and hip dysplasia. Additionally, as the disease progresses, atrophy of the muscles in the limbs and head becomes apparent.. ...
Feeds that are high in starch, such as sweet feed, maize, wheat, oats, barley, and molasses, appear to facilitate the development of type 1 and type 2 PSSM. That is why these ingredients should be avoided for horses that have PSSM. Extra calories can be provided in the form of fat (oil) for performance horses that are prone to PSSM. An important part of the management of PSSM horses is daily exercise. This enhances glucose utilization, and improves energy metabolism in skeletal muscle. If only the diet is changed, researchers have found that approximately 50% of horses improve. If both diet and exercise are altered, then 90% of horses have no or few episodes of tying-up. An old theory about tying-up is that it is due to too much lactic acid in the muscle. Many exercise studies have proven that this is absolutely not the case with PSSM.. The unique feature of PSSM is that the muscle cells in PSSM horses remove sugar from the blood stream and transported into their muscle at a faster rate, and ...

The use of statins in neurocardiovascular conditions has widely increased over the decades. Based on extension of indications major side effects of statin therapy became evident. In 1 of 10,000 treated persons per year, statins cause toxic muscle weakness and creatine kinase (CK) level elevation. A novel finding is that in some patients the statin-induced myopathy is caused by an autoimmune-mediated treatable myopathy by the presence of autoantibodies against 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A (HMG-CoA) reductase (anti-HMGCR). At present its frequency is 2 to 3 in 100.000 patients treated with statins. This neuromuscular phenotype encompasses a proximal symmetric weakness, and a persisting more than 10 times the upper limit of the normal range elevated CK levels. EMG presents an active myopathy with an increased spontaneous activity while muscle MRI shows muscle edema. Muscle biopsy reveals myofiber necrosis and regeneration with limited inflammation, analogous to the immune-mediated ...
A study published in the October-November-December 2009 issue of Primary Care Cardiovascular Journal, showed statin-induced myopathy is far more common than previously claimed by drug companies and health officials. Researchers analysed the patient records of one 8,000 patient practice and found only one recorded case of muscle symptoms in a patient taking statins.

ORIGINAL ARTICLE A New Mitochondria-Related Disease Showing Myopathy with Episodic Hyper-creatine Kinase-emia Yuji Okamoto, MD, PhD,1 Itsuro Higuchi, MD,1 Yusuke Sakiyama, MD,1 Shoko Tokunaga, MD,1 Osamu Watanabe, MD, PhD,1 Kimiyoshi Arimura, MD,2 Masanori Nakagawa, MD,3 and Hiroshi Takashima, MD, PhD1 Objective: To elucidate the relationship between mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) alterations and a mitochondrial disease with a distinct combination of characteristic symptoms, namely episodic hyper-creatine kinase (CK)-emia and mild myopathy. Methods: We selected 9 patients with mtDNA np8291 alteration from 586 patients suspected to have a mitochondrial disease, and assessed them clinically, pathologically, and genetically. These 9 patients had undiagnosed mitochondrial myopathy with episodic hyper-CK-emia, all showing similar symptoms and progression. Results: Patients had mild muscle weakness and episodic hyper-CK-emia triggered by infections or drugs. Five of 9 patients were initially diagnosed with ...

These 4 cases demonstrate that there proteins expressed in diseased skeletal that are detected by antibodies in the fourth generation and high sensitivity cTnT assays. Although sub-clinical cardiac pathology leading to cTnT elevation cannot be totally excluded on the basis of the study, as the authors point out, this is unlikely. These patients had no apparent heart disease and had normal cTnI levels. These findings are consistent with other studies that describe an elevation of cTnT with normal cTnI in patients with myopathies.(8, 9) This provocative study, however, leads to more questions than answers. What is the prevalence of cTnT elevation in patients with skeletal muscle disease? Are there certain skeletal muscle diseases that more commonly have an elevation in cTnT? Will elevation of cTnT in this setting confound the diagnosis of acute coronary syndrome in a significant number of patients that present to Emergency Departments? Further studies are needed to address these issues.. What are ...

Facial dysmorphism described in the CCFDN seems to become more obvious during late childhood and appears to be more prominent in males than in females.1 Indeed, in family 2, the male patient was the only affected person presenting dysmorphic features.. Concerning ocular abnormalities, cataracts in MSS are usually congenital but may also occur during childhood. No other developmental abnormality of the eye has been reported in MSS, as opposed to microcornea which appears to be a major clinical and probably a diagnostic criterion of CCFDN.. Moreover MSS and CCFDN syndromes differ regarding myopathic changes. Progressive muscle weakness and muscle atrophy were reported to be among the cardinal signs of MSS.12 Most muscle biopsy reports have described myopathic changes including variation in muscle fibre size, rimmed vacuoles, necrotic and regenerative fibres, numerous internal nuclei, nuclear degeneration, endomysial fibrosis, and fatty replacement.12-17 Sewry et al13 suggested that a unique dense ...

Hi. Im trying to make the rounds and post my experience with similar symptoms that you described in hopes of helping those suffering from what I was recently suffering from. I am a 30 year old mother of two who is active and involved with raising my kids while my husband works. Just a month ago I started to notice SEVERE tension in my neck, back, shoulders, and head. I had some spasms throughout my chest area which was also very sore and sensitive. My skin was slightly tingly and I had some numbness in my hands and toes. My inner ear area was also beginning to get sensitive. I assumed that my dislocated C1 & C2 from a car accident 18 years ago was the cause even though it never did anything like this over an 18 year period. I scheduled multiple appointments with my primary doctor, cardiologist, and neurologist. I just knew I would be told I was either suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, heart disease, lupus, or some form of cancer. I honestly felt that I would be dying in a ...
NIH Rare Diseases : 50 myofibrillar myopathies (mfm) are a group of neuromuscular disorders characterized by slowly progressive weakness that can involve both proximal muscles (such as hips and shoulders) and distal muscles (those farther away from the trunk). some affected individuals also experience sensory symptoms, muscle stiffness, aching, or cramps. peripheral neuropathy or cardiomyopathy may also be present. most people with mfm begin to develop muscle weakness in mid-adulthood, but features of the condition can appear anytime between infancy and late adulthood. it may be caused by mutations in any of several genes, including des, cryab, myot, ldb3, flnc, and bag3; the signs and symptoms of mfm can vary widely depending on the conditions genetic cause. it is inherited in an autosomal dominant manner. treatment may include a pacemaker and implantable cardioverter defibrillator (icd) for arrhythmia or cardiac conduction defects; cardiac transplantation for progressive or life-threatening ...
The treatment of myopathy depends on what causes the myopathy. Treatments range from drug therapy for the muscular dystrophies and inflammatory myopathies to simply avoiding situations that work the muscles too hard for the metabolic myopathies.
List of 37 causes for Calf numbness and Weak and soft muscles, alternative diagnoses, rare causes, misdiagnoses, patient stories, and much more.
The muscular system can be broken down into three types of muscles: skeletal, smooth and cardiac. Skeletal muscles are the only voluntary muscle tissue in the human body and control every action that a person consciously performs. As the muscular system impacts so many of the functions necessary to sustain life, any muscle disorder can cause health problems, ranging from minor to severe. Not only do muscular disorders affect mobility, but can result in many other functional abnormalities, such as the inability to breath, swallow or speak. Causes of muscle disorders include injury or overuse, such as sprains or strains, cramps or tendinitis, a genetic disorder, such as muscular dystrophy, cancers, inflammation, such as myositis, diseases of nerves that affect muscles, infections, and certain medicines. Calf muscle - The calf muscle, on the back of the lower leg, is actually made up of two muscles: the gastrocnemius and the soleus. The gastrocnemius is the larger calf muscle, forming the bulge ...
To reach the healthcare market and have a medical intervention reimbursed in any format carries high risk and very low success rates. Even when all regulatory hurdles have been surpassed, there is no guarantee that the product will be purchased; a different body makes that decision using criteria typically unknown to early-stage innovators and intervention developers. In the context of skeletal muscle diseases, the field is at a crossroads; accurate diagnoses are difficult to obtain, patient management and monitoring are equally difficult, cures are evasive, and disease progression is not well enough understood in the human to identify clear targets (irrespective of whether the specific muscle disease is rare or frequent because the progression is slow and the tissue large ...
FLNC_HUMAN] Defects in FLNC are the cause of myopathy myofibrillar type 5 (MFM5) [MIM:609524]. A neuromuscular disorder, usually with an adult onset, characterized by focal myofibrillar destruction and pathological cytoplasmic protein aggregations, and clinical features of a limb-girdle myopathy.[1] Defects in FLNC are the cause of myopathy distal type 4 (MPD4) [MIM:614065]. MPD4 is a slowly progressive muscular disorder characterized by distal muscle weakness and atrophy affecting the upper and lower limbs. Onset occurs around the third to fourth decades of life, and patients remain ambulatory even after long disease duration. Muscle biopsy shows non-specific changes with no evidence of rods, necrosis, or inflammation.[2] ...

Read about the link between muscle weakness and pain and thyroid disease, and how your muscle symptoms can be effectively treated.
Skelaxin belongs to the group of miorelaxants. Its main active substance blocks the nerve impulses (or pain feeling) in the brain, which contributes to the muscle relaxation. It is especially efficient when used together with physiotherapy and rest, to treat the severe skeletal muscle disorders. Muscle cramps may also be the reason of back pain. It provides fast relief from pain without any negative adverse effects.
The rates of muscle-related adverse effects (AEs) differ greatly for various statins, with the highest reported rates seen for rosuvastatin.

I have been on Crestor for quite a while. Within the past few months I developed dibilating muscle pain and stiffness. So much so that I literally tripped over my own feet because I couldnt lift my legs. I fell and hurt myself pretty badly. Frankly I thought I had a muscle disorder like ALS. The symptoms seemed to be the same. Although I had always heard the disclaimer about muscle pain on Crestor commercials but it was an article on AOL (last week) that saved me. I clicked on it and the article descrbed my symptoms, and how I felt, perfectly. In fact it said that these symptoms can mimic ALS and/or Muscular Dystrohpy. I work in a hospital so I ran down to the primary care clinic and told the doctor my symptoms and how I felt. Thank goodness he believed me. My blood tests came back negative, however I am in a small group that have the symptoms but normal blood tests. I havent taken Crestor for about a week now. I feel like a different person!
