  • Spinal Cord Infarction

    Within days, flaccid limbs become spastic and hyporeflexia (underactive nerve responses) turns into hyperreflexia (overactive nerve responses) and extensor plantar nerve responses[en.wikipedia.org] A 61-year-old woman presented with the acute onset of right lower extremity paresthesias followed within 15 minutes by complete bilateral lower extremity paralysis and urinary[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] , occiput, or anterior thorax; extremity muscle weakness; paresthesia of the upper and/or lower extremities; dizziness and fainting; impaired vibration sense at the ankle;[chiro.org]
