About the Kelly H 1999 answer you gave she was talking about Osteophytes in neck, and headaches, tingling in hands, arms. I too get a really bad headache side of head. Ice pick type and I feel it is from my neck. It happens when I turn my neck, no warning just snap , intense pain then it feels like my brain is bleeding. I have been diagnosed anterior osteophytes narrowing c5 c6 and they did the nerve conduction on hands comes out carpel tunnel but I feel it is all because of my neck. Headache also.
Thanks and suggestions if you have the time.
Hello, I am not sure you would be able to give me any advice or not but it is worth a try. I am 47 yrs of age, female. about three months ago I had sudden sharp pain in my lower right side, thought maybe I had moved wrong but it kept getting worse and then shooting down into my leg. I went to the ER and was admitted to the hospital as my blood work showed a small infection and they thought might be apendisities (spelled wrong not a strong point of mine) the infection went away but pain got worse. They felt it was the sciatic nerve and sent me home and I recieved therapy for 6 weeks. Well... the pain is still there, but has changed. It now covers the whole area of my lowerback, hips and sometimes into my thighs. I have good days where I can deal with the pain, bad and worse days.
Hello, I don't know if you will be able to answer this or not, but here goes. I have a syrinx on my spine from T7 to T10. The doctor I see doesn't seem concerned and feels no monitoring is needed. I am a nurse so I realize that the internet is a wonderful tool for information but also alot of misinformation. However, what I have read in regard to this suggests my doctor is wrong and that monitoring is suggested. I don't know how long it's been there, and I have several issues I'm dealing with right now with my back but I don't really think it's related to the syrinx. My question I suppose is whether or not I should insist that we monitor the syrinx?
