I am a 45 yr old woman who was diagnosed 3.5 years ago with severe Fibromyalgia and Multiple Sclerosis. At that time, I had a C-Spine MRI which showed a small demyelinating lesion. Nothing else was noted.
A few months ago, I started having sensations in my right leg and foot, severe pain around my rib cage, upper back pain, constant neck pain, etc. My neurologist had another C-Spine MRI done a few weeks ago. The lesion has remained stable, but the report shows progressive myelmalacia. The actual verbiage was "Progressive central linear cord signal abnormality and degenerative changes consistent with progressive myelomalacia when compared to prior study." There was mentioned in the report that there was "linear symmetric abnormal cord signal and loss of cord bulk, likely secondary to chronic myelomalacia due to multilevel spondylosis...'.
How can progressive myelomalacia be treated? Can it be slowed down?
Can spondlosis be reversed, treated, cured?
What is the "typical" progression of this/these condition(s)?
Any information is greatly appreciated. :)
