What are the signs & symptoms of Transverse Myelitis?

Typical signs and symptoms of Transverse Myelitis usually develop rapidly over a period of hours, and include:

  • Weakness of the legs and/or arms - Depending on the level of involvement within the spinal cord, coordination and strength in the extremities may be affected.
  • Sensory alteration - Patients typically report numbness, tingling, coldness, burning sensations, and sensitivity to touch.
  • Pain - Unfortunately, up to 50% of those diagnosed with TM report pain as the first symptom of the disorder. It can be localized to the back, or appear as sharp, shooting pain that radiates down the legs, arms or around the midsection.
  • Bowel and bladder dysfunction - Some patients report an increased frequency or urge to urinate or defecate, incontinence, difficulty voiding, sensation of incomplete evacuation or constipation.

Other more subtle signs and symptoms may include (but are not limited to):

  • Muscle spasms, especially in your legs
  • Headache
  • Fever
  • Loss of appetite

Having TM can significantly impact your ability to perform normal everyday tasks. Call your doctor immediately if you experience any of these symptoms. Transverse Myelitis can be extremely serious, so be sure to have your condition checked out as soon as possible.
