Are asymmetric reflexes of concern?

I saw a pain management doctor today who advised me to see a neurologist immediately, as my reflexes were very asymmetric.  Upper body reflexes were "too happy" and lower body reflexes were absent or minimal.  My neurologist is on vacation.  Is this something that needs to be attended to right away, or can I afford to wait?  What do the asymmetric reflexes suggest?

Dear Friend,
You need to wait, till your concerned Neurologist returns back. As per this post, i can infer that presently you don't have any specific problem, it's only related to the reflexes, which has been brought to your notice, by your treating doctor .
So you can buy out time and wait for a proper neurological evaluation, before taking this issue forward.
Feel free to discuss further.
