I was so glad to find this sight and hope that you all can offer some advice. My husband was recently hospitalized due to total body paralysis and decreased lung function. He has Parkinson's Disease but only on the right side of his body and it has been controlled with medication...until last week. These new symptoms came on in a matter of days and scared the heck out of us. At the hospital they discovered that he had a spinal cord injury with some compression at C5-C6. But they did not make much fuss about this new discovery. Does anyone know if this would account for the following symptoms:
- Extreme headache
- Profuse sweating
- numbness in his arms and legs
- total (but intermittent) paralysis
Any help would be much appreciated.
