126 Possible Causes for Bilateral Leg Weakness, Hyperreflexia

  • Multifocal Motor Neuropathy

    Atrophy may be present, but hyperreflexia and spasticity are not seen.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] MMN can usually be distinguished from ALS by its more slowly progressive disease course, the absence of upper-motor-neuron signs such as spasticity and hyperreflexia and the[mmcneuro.wordpress.com] Upper motor neuron signs (spasticity, hyperreflexia, extensor plantar response).[clinicaltrials.gov]
