In brief: See below

Symptoms of paraplegia are paralysis or weakness of the lower extremities.
There may also be loss of sensation in the lower extremities. Some people with paraplegia also have something called spasticity which is an increase in muscle tone that can cause stiffness and spasms in the legs. Some people may have problems with normal function of the bowels and bladder some people may have sexual problem.
