The brain and spinal cord communicates with what is occurring in the internal organs and limbs by nerve fibers where are like electrical wires with insulation (myelin) and the "copper" (axon). Within brain and spinal cord these nerves connect to other nerves via synapses on both axons and dendrites. A nerve can carry information regarding sensations, and ...Read more
I have a syrinx in my spinal cord that causes a lot of back pain. Is it safe to have nerve block injections?
Which is most effective at treating severe chronic neuropathic pelvic pain that has no cause: spinal cord stimulator, nerve block injection or tens?
Syrinx: Unusual but yes it can happen. It really depends on the size of the syrinx, the smaller and shorter ones this would be quite unusual - in the larger and longer ones this would be more typical but still unusual.
Is genitofemoral nerve block injection given at spinal cord? Pain management doc says it will b performed under anaesthesia, afterwards it hurts lot?
Generally No: Genitofemoral nerve block is a peripheral nerve and it's innervation (where it gets it's feeling from) is at the L1 and L2 spinal nerve levels. Typically the block is done at the peripheral level in the lower abdomen/pelvic area next to the pubic bone. Sometimes when this technique provides short term benefit, another injection may be performed at the spinal nerve levels to get relief.
My two and a half year old has a 4.3mm syrinx in her spinal cord and her nero surgon says she is not overly concerned is this normal?
My syrinx is almost wall to wall in my spinal cord. If they drain the syrinx will the spinal cord rejuvenate itself?
HARD TO PREDICT: If your syrinx is creating a compressive effect within spinal cord, risk of future deterioration is very real indeed, and would try to get this under control before more neurological disability ensues. Although you may not necessarily reverse all the pre-existing issues, the likelihood of prevention and cessation of the damage is very good if surgery is performed. Please discuss fully with doc.
Can primary nocturnal enuresis at age 21 be caused by a spinal syrinx or cmt? Does it have to be checked out?
Both cause enuresis: Presence of syrinx can be associated with primary enuresis. Charcot-marie-tooth usually becomes evident in adolescence, and patients can develop secondary enuresis, although primary enuresis may have been present from birth ; enuresis remained after symptoms of CMT developed without a period of dryness in-between.See 1 more doctor answer
If I have symptoms that have me concerned I may have a syrinx in my spine would it still be okay to have a spinal block for a csection?
Depends: Depends in part on the nature and cause of your symptoms. If you are having unexplained neurological symptoms, ideally they would be accurately diagnosed before you undergoing any interventional procedures that involve the spine.
I have a spinal syrinx from t2-t8. Could this be causing chest pain, numbness in fingers and hands and numb feeling skin on my back?
Spinal Syrinx: A spinal syrinx is a rare, fluid-filled neuroglial cavity within the spinal cord (syringomyelia), and if causes pressure on the nerves that innervate the chest, arms and back area, could certainly cause some of those symptoms to occur. See the neurologist for an evaluation and treatment. Best wishes to you.
Was getting a nerve block today and dr and nurse were saying something was really small now I have spinal stenosis and was wondering what they meant?
Herniated Disc: Herniated discs in the cervical (neck) region can compress the spinal cord, nerve leaving the spinal cord, or not compress either. If neurologic compression is present, pain radiating down the arm is a common complaint. Arm or leg numbness or weakness can also be present if spinal cord compression is identified.See 1 more doctor answer
Yes: Herniated cervical (neck) disks can compress nerves that serve the arms.See 2 more doctor answers
