In brief: Early in the disease
A nervous system and mental examination will show memory problems and changes in other mental functions.
Later in the disease, a motor system examination may show: abnormal reflexes or increased normal reflex responses. Increase in muscle tone. Muscle twitching and spasms. Strong startle response. Weakness and loss of muscle tissue (muscle wasting)there is loss of coordination
