    T-10 Para post 24 years. This has happened to me on many occasions. It's usually your body telling you something is wrong below your level of sensation. Here's two examples of what I found. I took off my shoe my pinky toe got caught in my sock. It was pulled out to the side I didn't see it and forced my shoe on. Another time well embarrassing I was sitting on my twins down there. I have no sensation so I couldn't tell I was sitting on them. Good luck!

    If your blood pressure is not elevated from your normal, it is not AD.

    Inappropriate sweating can occur in the first 1-2 years post injury, but you are beyond this. It can unfortunately also be a symptom of a syrinx. Are you sweating above your injury level or below, or both? Any other neurologic changes noted recently?

    A syrinx (also called syringomyelia) is a fluid filled cyst inside the spinal cord. They are common right at the level of the spinal cord damage, but for some people, they can grow. If they grow above the injury level, they can cause loss of sensation or even strength where you had intact sensation or strength. An MRI is usually needed to make the diagnosis.

    Sounds like you can wait until next week to see your physician. The diagnosis of a syrinx also requires a extensive examination, and you may need further evaluation by a neurosurgeon who is very experienced in the management of post-traumatic syrinx and/or tethered cord syndrome.

    Again, if your sweating was related to autonomic dysreflexia (AD) your blood pressure would be elevated.

    I am on oxybutinin. If I go off it, I sweat constantly. My sweating is confined to the left side of my head and my left shoulder.
