slow reflexes

I commented on my neuro appt. in that same post.

The only thing that came out a little abnormal was my reflexes. My right leg had very little reflex. He hit my leg with the hammer a couple times and it didn't move. So he went on to my other leg which was normal. He came back to my right leg and this time there was a teeny tiny reflex. He rated it a 1 on the scale but didn't say anything about it. Apperantly, I'm as healthy as a horse. haha

I've heard a lot about hyper reflexes but not much on slow reflexes.

Any thoughts?

Slow reflexes are more consistent with peripheral nervous system and hyper reflexes are more consistent with the central nervous system.

Thanks. Yeah that makes sense but I'm not sure what it means with regard to what is going on with me. I guess it doesn't necessarly show anything either way.
