Aug 14, 2012 · Chiari and syringomyelia with DDD in Brain & Nervous System

Dr Ryken did surgery on the chiari but now i have no feeling at all in left leg. He said that it’s probably from one or both of the syrinx’s. I do not know what to do with this because those are in middle of the spinal cord and i do not want to just go to just anyone. I do not want to end up in a wheel chair!!

Jun 17, 2012 · Chiari and syringomyelia with DDD in Brain & Nervous System

I have had fusion at C5,6 and 7 already in Dec2011 then was diagnosed with 2 syrinx’s in my thoracic spinal cord, I have no feeling in my back region and also have Chiari malformation type 1. I have constant migraines, pressure and sometimes my leg just stops working. My left theigh is constantly numb and tbh I am scared out of my mind about all of this. I requested an apt with neuro at Mayo up in MN to….i do not know what to do. I am taking over 5000mg of IB a daily and it’s really starting to upset my stomach but right now thats what i keep getting told to take for all of the pain and the 5000mg is only taking edge off…not getting rid of it…
