Yeah abnormal reflexes whether they be non-existent or exaggerated can be a symptom of Multiple Sclerosis.
If you go to your doctor or neurologist the test they do with the little hammer can tell a lot.
Here are some of the tests they may do and what they look for.
I know whenever I have go see my doctor, she usually notes whether there is a difference in the reflexes in one side of my body over the other. I have had times when my right leg will shoot up due to her tapping. This could be due to spasticity or a well placed lesion.
I also found a thread in a personal blog where people talk about this very symptom.
Have you already been diagnosed with MS or are you in the stage of finding out?
