Loose muscles can have various causes, ranging in severity from 'worrying' to 'very serious'. Finding the true cause means ruling out or confirming each possibility – in other words, diagnosis.
Diagnosis is usually a complex process due to the sheer number of possible causes and related symptoms. In order to diagnose loose muscles, we could:
|Myasthenia Gravis||2%||Ruled out|
|Premature Aging||0%||Ruled out|
Has your muscle tone been declining? Low tone muscles are soft, loose and allow great range of motion; high tone muscles are tight, rigid and allow less motion at the joints.
Possible responses:→ Don't know / I have always had soft/loose muscles
→ No, my muscles are still normal or high tone
→ Yes, my muscles are now a little softer and looser
→ Yes, my muscles are now very soft and loose
Over time, the loss of protein due to nephrotic syndrome causes muscles to become weak and small (muscle wasting).
Loss of muscle tone is a common neuritis symptom: The affected nerve keeps the muscles from staying toned.
