Dear patient,

Thanks for the query. The concerning issue would be that of a syndrome called Gillam Barre, which is a motor dysfunction caused by an erroneous immune response to a virus, that typically affects the legs first. It is very important to seek medical care and rule out this entity as it can be progressive and provoke respiratory involvement.

Yours truly,
