no reflexes on left side of body during test

If it's on your mind and it has to do with multiple sclerosis in any way, post it here.

no reflexes on left side of body during test

At a recent appointment my Dr reported no reflexes when performing the tap test on my knee and forearm. Has anyone experienced this as a symptom? Worried until I see the doctor again.

I believe a lack of reflexes is more likely from pinched (or otherwise mechanically disturbed) nerves. My understanding is that MS is generally the opposite: hyper reflexes rather than missing ones.

You should get a physiatrist to check that out.
