I have just been for an appointment with a neurologist appointment two weeks ago about my chronic migraines and facial pain. I mentioned in passing that I was having a really bad time with shoulder pain and loss of muscle tone in my shoulder (my shoulder seems to have dropped), and tingling and numbness in my left leg and arm. I thought it was the way I was sitting in my chair at work. Anyway, the consultant did the usual neuro exam and referred me for an MRI. In letter he wrote to my GP he has written that the neuro exam was largely unremarkable, although I did have sustained clonus at the left ankle and that my reflexes were generally brisk.
Now - any searches that I have done have told me that clonus is NEVER normal. and this has got me worried. Can anyone shed light on this? Can clonus ever just be an oddity of someones normal physiology? or is it always related to interruption of upper motor neuron fibers?
thank you so much in advance
