Our expert says:
The under active thyroid can be the cause for your poor reflexes. I suggest that you wait until your thyroid count has normalised before you are concerned about the abscent reflexes. Usually an abscent reflex indicate that there is pathology of the nerve that supplies the limb with motorneuron function. If there is no paralysis, I would not be concerned.
