In brief: Spinal cord problem

It is a problem with the spinal cord.
A common cause is pressure from disk, bone spurs or soft tissues around the cord. Some reflexes are weakened, but most of them are increased. The person with myelopathy may notice this because the muscles are spastic (contract on their own, tight) and/or weak.
