    Question Cerebral-Spinal fluid (or lack of)

    Hi,

    Keep going back to what one of my Ortos said. That due to the spinal cord compression, there is either very little or no Cerebral-Spinal fluid around my cord from level C4-C7. Does anyone know how bad this is, what kind of additional damage it could be causing and what symptoms may be present?

    I still waiver between having the surgery (ACDF C4-7) and not. Don't like having to live with the restrictions I am under now, but worry about the outcome and "unknown".

    Thanks for listening.

    Lettie

    I looked back at your original post and your symptoms seem similar to mine - numbness, tremors, balance, weakness, I also have a gait issue. My spine was constricted C4-C7 and surgery significantly improved everything - still minor numbness, tremors, balance, weakness -- all very minor, gait is 60% improved.

    I was told, and obviously ask your Doc - that if I let it go with the diminished spinal fluid flow I'd risk paralysis.
