Go to the ER: Primary muscle problems like myopathy or myositis are associated with decreased reflexes. Spasticity and increased reflexes are suspicious for spinal cord disease. It may also be associated with a drug reaction referred to as serotonin syndrome. You need to see your doctor or go to the er as soon as possible.
