Chorea

Homeopathic Treatment of Chorea

Chorea is an abnormal involuntary movement derived from the Greek word “dance”.  It is characterized by brief, abrupt, irregular, unpredictable, non-stereotyped movements. In milder cases, they may appear purposeful; the patient often appears fidgety and clumsy. They can affect various body parts, and interfere with speech, swallowing, posture and gait. Chorea may worsen with anxiety and voluntary movements, and subsides during sleep. Chorea is characterized by brief, semi-directed, irregular movements that are not repetitive or rhythmic, but appear to flow from one muscle to the next.

These 'dance-like' movements of chorea often occur with athetosis, which adds twisting and writhing movements. Walking may become difficult, and include odd postures and leg movements.

Unlike ataxia, which affects the quality of voluntary movements, or Parkinsonism, which is a hindrance of voluntary movements, the movements of chorea and ballism occur on their own, without conscious effort. Thus, chorea is said to be a hyperkinetic movement disorder.

When chorea is serious, slight movements will become thrashing motions; this form of severe chorea is referred to as ballism or ballismus.

Causes

  • Chorea can occur in a variety of conditions and disorders.
  • Chorea is a primary feature of Huntington's disease, a progressive neurological disorder.
  • Twenty percent (20%) of children and adolescents with rheumatic fever develop Sydenham's chorea as a complication.
  • Chorea gravidarum is rare type of chorea which is a complication of pregnancy.
  • Chorea may also be caused by drugs (levodopa, anti-convulsants, anti-psychotics), metabolic disorders, endocrine disorders, and stroke.
  • Wilson's disease, a genetic disorder that leads to toxic levels of copper in the body
  • Transmissible spongiform encephalopathy’s: A group of neurodegenerative diseases such as Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease and Kuru, caused by prions.
  • Neuroacanthocytosis, a genetic disorder that may affect the blood, brain, peripheral nerves, muscle and heart. Common features include peripheral neuropathy, cardiomyopathy and hemolytic anemia. Other features include limb chorea, facial tics, other oral movements (lip and tongue biting), seizures, a late-onset dementia and behavioral changes.

Symptoms

  • Swelling and inflammation (arthritis) of one or more joints that may be characterized by redness, warmth, tenderness, and pain (arthralgia) of affected joint regions. Arthritis and fever are the most common symptoms initially recognized in association with ARF.
  • Symptoms of muscular twitching, among which are twitching and spasms of the eyeballs and eyelids; it has angular choric movements and spasmodic motions of the extremities, which are not confined to one side of the body, but affect the upper half on one side of the body and the lower half on the other.
  • Symptoms may appear gradually or suddenly, and may include muscle weakness, hypotonic (decreased muscle tone), and clumsiness. The symptoms vary in severity--from mild cases in which there is restlessness, facial grimacing, and a slight degree of in-coordination of movements, to severe cases involving involuntary movements that incapacitate the child. 1
