Serum creatine phosphokinase and aldolase levels are normal.[orthobullets.com] […] muscle weakness (Usually upper arms & legs more so than hands and feet) preceded by an asymptomatic period (all but most severe type 0) Flattening of the chest wall when[en.wikipedia.org] Other symptoms may include: Decreased or absent deep tendon reflexes, such as the relfex that occurs when you tap on your knee.[ucsfbenioffchildrens.org]

  • Spinal Cord Lesion

    Motor weakness commonly occurs in people with spinal cord lesions in MS, causing weakness bilaterally, which mostly affects the legs, according to the Merck Manuals Online[livestrong.com] Rectal tone may be decreased, and deep tendon reflexes may be exuberant or absent. Imaging Traditionally, plain x-rays are taken of any possibly injured areas.[merckmanuals.com] The first presented with hyperaesthesia in the right arm and bilateral pyramidal leg weakness, the second with a partial right sided Brown Sequard syndrome with a sensory[en.wikibooks.org]

  • Spinal Cord Compression

    Leg pain may occur and be unilateral or bilateral in nature that radiates from the back.[myvmc.com] Deep-tendon reflexes may be initially hypoactive or absent.[emedicine.medscape.com] Motor Weakness: This usually follows pain, the time frame for this sign is often variable, from hours to days, weeks or months.[myvmc.com]

  • Hypokalemic Periodic Paralysis

    In the majority of patients, deep tendon reflexes are markedly diminished or absent, although some patients may have brisk or normal jerks, even during paralysis ( 15 ).[doi.org] The commonest sites are legs. The less common severe forms of disease present with generalized weakness/ complete paralysis. They are acute or insidious in onset.[explainmedicine.com] The weakness is usually bilateral, and may spread to the proximal parts of the upper limbs, trunk and neck later.[explainmedicine.com]

  • Multifocal Motor Neuropathy

    Deep tendon reflexes Deep tendon reflexes are typically absent (particularly in affected limbs) or normal.[emedicine.medscape.com] Deep tendon reflexes were absent in the lower limbs and right upper limb.[jnnp.bmj.com] Deep tendon reflexes were abolished. Sensory and autonomic functions were normal.[jnnp.bmj.com]
