Hi, welcome to the forum. I read your post and then came to your profile and see that you do have Syringomyelia. I am sorry you found to have this diagnosis, but we are here for you when you are in need of support and answering questions,
You really should do more research on your condition and know the risks you take by working. I dont know what you do, but there are links in the health pages on the main forum site it is on the upper right hand corner. Also if you have any questions, feel free to ask anytime. I have done a lot of reasearch, and so have many others on the site but not as many of us have a Syrinx. Hope to hear back from you soon!
