Anyone with a syrinx have pain when sneezing where syrinx is located?

I've noticed for years, that I always hurt in the same area that my normal radiating/numbness/pain/tingling originates from along my spine, especially when I sneeze.  My MRI shows what I think is a syrinx, still waiting for my appointment next month to find out for sure, but it would make sense & I wouldn't be surprised at all if it is a syrinx.

I've noticed more pain, popping, & crunchy noises lately, too down in my tspine & lspine....just more questions to write on my list....

  Hi...I did not have a syrinx but wanted to chime in bcuz I had spine pain that radiated  as well, but as I said no syrinx...so, other chiari issues may be the culprit and it may be a coincidence that u do have a syrinx there.

Just something to consider....

Well with not having it dxd yet it just really makes me more suspicious, I know that my scoliosis curvature is in the same area according to some xrays I have, & I've read that syrinx can cause scoliosis, so idk which came first, the chicken or the egg ya know?  Plus the pics I have posted about the questionable syrinx would be in the area of my cspine(& even lower back pain/questionable syrinx) where I'm having more pain, radiating pain,numbness, tingling, & sharp shooting pains alot of times.

I guess I should see if there could be any way of having an mri of my entire spine since I've already got ct,mri cspine,& mri brain scheduled in a couple of weeks... I've ben dxd with scoliosis,kyphosis,& lordosis, so maybe I should see if I can get it all checked out, especially with my hips, legs, & lower back causing me more issues here lately...

Thanks SelmaS

  I also have mild scoliosis...I also had loss of the curve of the  cervical lordosis... that was from whip lash.

What do u mean u have lordosis?

  Did he say what part of ur spine, it means loss of the inward curve....

I know u can have it in the lumbar and cervical spine, mine was in the cervical spine....
