I do not know of a correlation between a syrinx and pancreatic enzymatic problems. The syrinx is a type of pain that is extremely difficult to treat and will never go away. That is what is meant by central intractable pain.
: Dear Dr Whitworth, I read about a man who had multiple problems with his abdominal organs, After many test they discovered he had a syrinx. My cervical syrinx was discovered 5 yrs ago. Since than my gallbladder wasn't working and was removed, I have pancreatic insufficiency ,malabsorption,and hypermotility of the small intestines. Do you think this is caused by the syrinx? I haven't been able to find any written correlations.Also what do you mean when you say the pain from the syrinx is central pain and can be intractable? Thank you again for your valuable time. Cee
