The ICD-10 and ICD-9 GEMs are used to facilitate linking between the diagnosis codes in ICD-9-CM and the new ICD-10-CM code set. The GEMs are the raw material from which providers, health information vendors and payers can derive specific applied mappings to meet their needs.

Information for Patients

Muscle Disorders

Also called: Myopathy

Your muscles help you move and help your body work. Different types of muscles have different jobs. There are many problems that can affect muscles. Muscle disorders can cause weakness, pain or even paralysis.

Causes of muscle disorders include

  • Injury or overuse, such as sprains or strains, cramps or tendinitis
  • A genetic disorder, such as muscular dystrophy
  • Some cancers
  • Inflammation, such as myositis
  • Diseases of nerves that affect muscles
  • Infections
  • Certain medicines

Sometimes the cause is not known.

  • Caring for muscle spasticity or spasms
  • Compartment syndrome
  • Contracture deformity
  • Creatine phosphokinase test
  • Electromyography
  • Eyelid twitch
  • Hypotonia
  • Muscle aches
  • Muscle atrophy
  • Muscle biopsy
  • Muscle function loss
  • Muscle twitching
  • Myopathic changes
  • Myotonia congenita
  • Rhabdomyolysis
  • Volkmann ischemic contracture
  • Weakness
