Re: Can a syrinx cause so many problems??
Hi I have been DX with a Syrinx C5 to T8. I was told by my Neurosurgeon it is there since birth and it developed along with a Bone spur that was pressing against my cord.
The symptoms I have are loss of feeling on the palms of my hands, pain and twitching in both feet and in the legs below the knees, neck and shoulder pain and complete loss of reflexes in both legs....
The issue with a syrinx is to find the cause. I know you say it is Congenital but often it develops due to other congenital conditions such as Chiari Malformation, Tethered cord syndrome, and other such conditions that can lead to a syrinx forming in the spinal cord.
Hope this helps...
