My left hand keeps falling asleep. I have syringomyelia diagnosed age 4 (13 now) I tweaked my back while in the pool last week both knees became stiff the full length of both my legs were tingly/tender and my left foot was asleep. my neurosurgeon released
Nerve compression: Your symptoms sound like more than muscle strain and are consistent with compression or injury to the spinal cord or major spinal nerves possibly from a herniated disc in the lumbar area. Without more information regarding location of your syringomyelia, it is hard to say if that is related. You need to be seen on an urgent basis and may need MRI. Your neurosurgeon knows you best. ...Read more

3-6 months: The recovery continues for 6 months or more. The most rapid phase is in the first 6 weels. At that time most patients will still have start up stiffness, mild swelling, difficulty sleeping through the night, and may still be taking pain medication.
