    Abnormal Signal in the spinal cord after MRI?????Spasams??


    Can anyone tell me if they have heard of abnormal Signal in the spinal cord? I was sent for a MRI my complaint was increased spsams in my right leg and a type of nerve twitch in my right foot usually when resting. The twitching is so bad at night it keeps me up 2 months ago I stopped taking all my medication and I have to say I never felt since my accident untill this twitching in my leg started. So of to the doctor and 1 MRI later I received a letter from my doctor saying they had found Abnormal signal from my SC????
    and no other explenation so I called and the nurse gave me a appointment because the DR wanted to see me I aasume in reguards to the letter can they be anymore vague.

    Any sugestions about the leg twitching, increased spasams usually when trying to stand or the Abnormal Signal fron the SC would be greatley appreciated.

    As always thank you to everyone for there input

    ANy change in position can increase your spasms, so standing may be a trigger for you. Since you came off of your medications, I am not surprised that the spasms increased. However, given that your MRI does not sound normal, that could also be increasing your spasms.

    I am so sorry to hear of the problems you are having. You say that you have had treatments, but don't say what they are, other than some type of needle treatment- was that acupuncture? What type of manipulation?
    Have you tried any type of disc surgery or procedures?
    Please try to give as much info- it will help make the information that you get back clearer.
