Cauda Equina Syndrome

Is anyone acquainted with Cauda Equina Symdrome? My sacrum looks like it is "shifted" in the L5S1 disk, and is bent almost 60 degrees from its normal position. I have leg and feet numbness, and leg weakness. Have had no surgeries as yet, but I expect to have to do so to relieve the problem (hopefully).

Any input would be appreciated.


  • What about it? Cauda Equina Syndrome occurs when you lose complete feeling from the lumbar down, and you lose control of your bowl movements. If you are not expereincing this, then it might be something else. Only reason I know this is because I thought I was suffering from it as well, and my Neuro told me I would most def know if I was, and losing control of your bowel movements is one of them. PM me if you have any more questions or what not if you need to. Good luck
  • pretty much summed it up. I hope that this is not what is going on with you. Good luck.
