    syringomyelia questions

    I have cerebellar ectopia and syringomyelia. In additon, my cervical MRI without contrast showed loss of lordosis, cervical disc degeneration, 2 bulging discs, narrowing of the neural foramina, and cervical stenosis. I've read that cervical DDD is common with syringomyelia, I was wondering if anyone knew if the loss of lordosis is also common? I thought maybe the pressure the syrinx puts on the spinal cord could maybe cause it to lose its curve and even possibly cause the discs to bulge? I tried to look this up but when I type in loss of lordosis all I get is tons of sites about scoliosis. I'm calling tomorrow to schedule an appt with a neurosurgeon as my neurologist has suggested I see one. I'm happy to do that because after my information hunt I don't think my neurologist is very knowledgable about syringomyelia. He told me I should have physical therapy for the cervical DDD, all the syringomyelia sites that I've found insist that PT can be dangerous. Any info anyone has regarding these conditions would be very appreciated. It's so confusing, all the doctors seem to argue about the cerebellar ectopia especially!
