Has anyone had abnormal reflexes?(hyperreflexia).
I have abnormal reflexes that move from one area to the next. The neuro doesn't know why. All testing has been normal so far.

I have it in my legs. I've had it for years, but it's gotten worse since I've been herxing.

It was suggested I take Potassium Magnesium Aspartate. This might help you.

I have it big time. Before I knew I had Lyme, they told me it was a symptom of Fibromyalgia.

My LLMD told me it is also a symptom of Lyme and quite common. Apparently it's not just the body's immune system that can go on high alert -- the reflexes also become much much more sensitive, hence the hyperreflexia.

My neurologist tested me and I have hyperreflexia practically everywhere he checked. I have no idea what to make of it but he didn't seem that concerned.
