Some patients may have complete paralysis with Todd’s paralysis, or partial paralysis, meaning the entire side of the body is not paralyzed. The duration of the paralysis can range from 30 minutes to 36 hours.

The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke noted that the average duration of Todd’s paralysis is 15 hours. Besides affecting the patient’s muscles, Todd’s paralysis can also affect the patient’s vision and speech.

The cause of Todd’s paralysis is not known. The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke stated that theories involve a decrease in energy output, which may occur in either the motor areas of the brain or in neurons.

There is also no treatment for Todd’s paralysis. When a patient is having symptoms, she should rest comfortably.
