In brief: Lots of things
True paralysis could be a medical emergency.
It happens with a stroke or when a nerve gets pinched. The pinch can come from a ruptured disk in your spine or from compression of the nerve from some activity. There are other possibilities too. You need to be checked out by your family doctor asap.
