(apologies for the double posting - this is tagged on another post as well.)
After suffering a mild set back with MAJOR pain, I saw PT today. She is new for me and so a fresh pair of eyes.
Did the Lhermitts Sign test http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lhermitte's_sign
which was OUCH! I am still ringing from back - toe. Boy did that hurt.
PT wonders if my cord is tethered, scarred and irritated. Says will let the surgeon know. She also explained it is a highly sensitive mechanism and so explains why I have such a low tolerance of doing anything before extreme pain kicks in. Also explains my total wobbly self, poor procepriation (?sp)and peculiar buzzing.
Worry is this is linked to a high incidence of MS so looks like another spiney closely looking at the links with MS. If anyone has any experience of this?
I'm stunned. Again.
On a quick look seems there is little they can do.
I wondr if they just killed the nerves, kill the pain, would that do the trick?
Well, I am still ringing fdrom it, even now.
