When you move your body, sensory nerves in the body communicate with the central nervous system. When something prevents this communication, your ability to move is affected and can result in weakness, loss of muscle coordination or paralysis. Paralysis is sometimes a gradual process, but it can also happen suddenly.

This quick onset symptom is treatable, even reversible, with prompt treatment. Goshen Hospital Emergency Department can help.
