Jul 9, 2019 · Want to know if myelopathy is still a form of neuropathy in Brain & Nervous System

I was diagnosed with Myelopathy of the lumbar area. It started out after my 3rd major back surgery. First was my right foot numb, tingling, feels like it's being shocked and painful. It then started moving up my right leg and so far it has slowed down above the knee. My left leg is also effected from the ankle all the way up to the middle of my thigh. I have tremors in my hands, my balance and coordination is completely off (I'm in therapy for it), I have incontinence problems. I don't know how much longer I can handle it the pain and not being able to get around very easy just doesn't have me very optimistic that my quality of life is going to get any better. If anyone out there is in a similar situation please let me know so I can hear other people's stories and how you are handling it. Thank you

Thank you so much for your information, I had severe scoliosis they found it when I was 12 and wore braces until I was 16 and nothing happened so I ended up having surgery and this was in the 1970's. They fused almost the entire spine and put a rod in and they left 4 or so that were not fused. Now I have had 3 others one of them 5 yrs ago tried to fix my flat back and messed it up so 2 yrs ago I found a Dr who deals with spinal deformations and he did surgery and he was able to fix my flat back and after surgery is when I started to feel the numbness, tingling, pain and electrical shocks and it has moved all the way up my legs.

I went to the doctor and she said that she doesn’t think I have sfn instead she says that I have something I think it starts with scoliosis and myelopathy. Is there anyone else who is dealing with something like this and how they?

Please let me know about the CBD salve, my ball of my right foot and toes are always in severe pain along with both of my legs clear up into the thighs. I've had to teach myself to drive and deal with the pain. But I would love to get some kind of relief. Right now I'm on pain meds, lyrica and other meds but still in major pain. Please help me out.
