Hyperreflexia

Postby German2 on August 31st, 2014, 3:51 am

Dear all,

in a clinical the neuro in hospital identified one hyperreflex in my biceps. (He thinks it could be from heriated disc and slight spinal stenosis C5-C8)
But I was afraid of this outcome.
So I asked my local neuro to approve. He could not find any hyperreflex there.
Those different statements make me crazy...

Has anyone an explanation for those different outcomes?

Thanks, German2

Hi German
first of all estimation of reflex strength is a bit individual. So in order to have definite diagnosis of hyperreflexia, you may need several consequitive tests/
The fact your neuro did not find any hyperreflexia, may mean that you rather had occasional strong reflex, not continous hyperreflexia.

Thank you Yulisair,

the strange thing is, that the clinic doc just felt my muscle and my neuro watched at my hand moving. So maybe it is two different things?

Maybe. Usually reflex strength is estimated on the basis of a movement size as far as I remember...
