Numbness in feet shortly after starting taking it. Went to below the knee after a while. Numbness started in thigh area. Now I cannot stand or walk. Many many tests have been done and all come back negative. Lots of tests have been redone 2 or 3 times.Has anyone heard of this happening? I was told it could be a rare side effect.
Are you seeing a neurologist? If you've had things like Multiple Sclerosis ruled out, they would have to consider that risperadol can cause akinesia. This is loss of the ability of voluntary movement. It has all kinds of neurological side effects. Why are you on it? Have you discontinued it?
