Symptoms of Tethered Spinal Cord Syndrome~~

Before you have been diagnosed, you may wonder how you may have gotten this condition. Tethered Spinal Cord can be a congenital condition, or it can be acquired as a result of an injury or surgery scar tissue.Most cases are congenital, and may be overlooked as it is sometimes referred to as Occulta tethered Cord, Occulta meaning Hidden.This means this condition may not always show up on a MRI and your Dr may need other testing results and your symptoms to help diagnose this condition.
Urodynamics testing is done to test the bladder muscles to see how it may be affected, and a brain MRI or cervical spine MRI may be done to look at the brain stem, those with tethered cord tend to have a more elongated one.Some other symptoms are:
          
Hairy patches on lower back
Dimples on lower back
Spinal deformities
