    Cervical Stenosis and Babinski

    Dx'd mild to moderate cervical stenosis 3 years ago. I've been concerned about what appears to me to be a positive Babinski reaction--toes retract backward rather than downward when the sole of the foot is stroked. Is or is not a positive Babinski a symptom of cord compression? I ask because I know it is most certainly a symptom of MS. Thanks.

    Re: Cervical Stenosis and Babinski

    Pretty sure it can be a symptom of either - so if you have radiological signs of cord compression then thats probably the most likely cause.

    Have you had surgery for the stenosis? If not I'd be curious about what other signs are you showing in addition to the babinski.

    Rob.
