History and Symptoms

The symptoms of quadriplegia depends on the severity of the injury and the place it occurred. In general, injuries that are higher in your spinal cord produce more paralysis. Patients may experience one or more of the following signs or symptoms:

  • Difficult in moving the limbs
  • Unable to feel anything below the damaged area, or pain in the arms, legs, back, and other areas
  • Loss of control on bladder and bowel control
  • Difficult in breathing, or unable to breathe without help.
