 Muscle weakness (or "lack of strength") is the inability to exert force with ones muscles to the degree that would be expected given the individual's general physical fitness . A test of strength is often used during a diagnosis of a muscular disorder before the etiology can be identified.


Hypotonia can be caused by a variety of conditions including those that involve the central nervous system, muscle disorders and genetic disorders. Some common causes can include but are not limited to Down syndrome, Muscular dystrophy, Cerebral palsy , Prader-Willi Syndrome, Myotonic dystrophy, Marfan syndrome and Tay-Sachs disease.


Some hypotonias are not progressive and are of an unknown origin. Central nervous system function and intelligence in children with this kind of hypotonia, benign congenital hypotonia, is normal. Children with benign congenital hypotonia may not experience developmental delay, although some children acquire gross motor skills (sitting, walking, running, jumping) more slowly than most.


Its Signs and symptoms are as below:


1) Unaccustomed exercise.

2) Symptoms that appear following a period of rest after the exercise, an hour or 2 later or the next day. Frequently a high-carbohydrate meal after competition or vigorous physical exercise, followed by a night's sleep. The muscle weakness then appears the next day.

3) Weakness that begins in the legs and progresses to the arms or other muscles in the body. Disabling fatigue accompanies the muscle weakness.
