Dr. Peter Glusker
Neurology
In brief: Flaccid
There are many causes of flaccid (loose) paralysis, starting with motor nerve synaptic malfunction (as in myasthenia), motor nerve damage (as in polio or other disorders), certain spinal cord lesions affecting motor control.
Rarely certain regions of the brain can also cause flaccid paralysis or weakness. There are also some metabolic conditions. My suggestion is that you consult a neurologist.
