Hi, everyone. This is my first post.
A few months ago, I has a TIA (transient ischemic attack/small stroke), and ever since then, there's been a 'numb/tingly' feeling on the right side of my body, head to toe. On September 1, per my neurologist's order, I had an MRI of my cervical spine. A few hours later, the radiology department called me and said the radiologist wanted a second MRI done. Three days later, when I had the second MRI, I asked the MRI tech why the doctor needed it. She pointed to a section on my MRI and said 'This is called a syrinx.' It looked like its length ran from C2 to C4. However, on the copy I took home with me, it looks like it could be either C2 to C4 OR C2 to C7 OR C5 to C7. The reason for the uncertainty is because the copy the tech gave me is a multi-image copy of my MRI. I have yet to hear back from my radiologist regarding the second MRI. How can I tell *exactly* which vertebrae are involved, and does this mean I have syringomyelia?
