After my sons 5th birthday party we came home to play with all his new toys. That night he started complaining of a headache and said his legs felt sleepy, I treated the headache with Tylenol and we went to bed. The next morning he woke up completely paralyzed from neck down (c3) we are almost 2 years out with some recovery, this diseases is rare and there is only 2 doctors that really treats it.
Legs feeling sleepy, headache, legs tingling, lose of bowl, and urine retention they can hit all the sudden or over a course of weeks or months.
