About Me: Female, 32, thibodaux, LA, member since Nov 2012
I am 27 years old now I just found out I have a syrinx. I don't know where or how long the Nuerologist just said its small but it's still causing big problems. I am numb all over and can't feel temperature cold and hot on my feet. I can walk barefoot on a hot concrete.
[More] I am concerned my syrinx is causing more problems then the nuerologist thinks it is. He thinks my issues a rents from it but I beg to differ. I want to go see my neurosurgeon who is the chiari specialist who will have a better knowledge about this and better help me!
"My symptoms are full body numbness trouble walking and have problems feeling cold. No plantar reflex. My nuerologist said it was small and it couldn't be caused by the syrinx my question is should I go to get a second opinion at a nueros..."
Just a quick note to say hi! Hey...how are you feeling? If a syrinx was found, I am sure you have some symptoms that indicate one....deff talk with your NS and see what they think....could be due to scar tissue???Keep me posted.
