    Angry Pain Broke and Awful Feeling

    I recently went to an appointment in Atlanta at the Shepard Center. I told them of my tingling numb fingers and on and off numb sensations. I was concerned I might have a sryinx? The Dr. told me it was highly unlikely that my T-12 had moved to above T-6. This is where it would have to move to effect my Neurological condition. Makes sense... hope he is right. He said in 16 years, he has never seen that... so it would be a first? Any thoughts?. pain is absolutely awful ever fricken minute.. every second. On every pain med I can possible take... yea it helps a little but sure wish I had something better? But If Doc Wise cant suggest or Berg... then unlikely its out there. To bad for me... too bad fir us. Like Chris Rock says in his act... if your paralyzed.. all they have for you is a prescription for a wheelchair. HE then says... I'm hurt.. and all you can do is give me an RX for furniture? LOL, I love that one. So true, isn't it???

    I had a syrinx that extended the entire length of my back, both above and below my level of injury and continued up into my brain stem. So, yes it is possible. Whether or not that is what is causing your problems, I don't know. I don't think it would hurt to request an MRI, just to rule it out though. I am surprised your doctor didn't request one anyway.

    Tingling in fingers woud be C7-8 up.Have you had an MRi?If the pain (and numbness is that bad), you definitely need to find the cause. Is the pain lower? Neurpathic pain? Have you seen a pain specialist?

    Yeah, I think that doctor is an idiot. My original injury was at T7, but my syrinx ran from above C5 down past T12. Call Barth Green's office in Miami and ask them who you should talk to in your area about having an MRI done.
