i am long term sci L1 i sustained in a falling accident i had burst fracture and use catheters and bowel digistem i also have another problem i have never read about ever when googling or on any sci site?? i have altered sensation in perineum area and across buttocks area but localised to middle area the pain when sitting down for even half an hour systematically rises to excruciating uncomfortableness and i have to lie down on my side for ages to get relief
the only time it feels fine is after a nights sleep in the morning but again sitting down makes it worse shortly, i don't know whether it is cauda equina syndrome with retention or conus medullaris which seems more likely
has anyone got an answer please?
obviously i have no muscle tone on my buttocks so my sitting bones are under attack so to speak but its not pain from the bones it is nerve type pain
