Hi all! I think I've posted this question a while ago, but still looking for answers. Ya'll understand my special kind of crazy....maybe someone will recognize this!?
Ok...there are times that when I turn my head, cough, laugh, or even open my mouth wide enough (like to eat a sub sandwich) that I can feel something (can't describe it) but I know that a nasty signal is traveling down my spine--but no pain--and then BOOM! In what feels like the very end of my spinal cord it feels like someone slammed about 20mls of fluid into my epidural space (for those that have had ESI's you know this pressure/pain feeling)and it comes and goes in about 10-20 seconds. It hurts like I can't even explain and it'll happen with any jarring of my spine.
This happened after my last surgery and would come and go. All my surgical PA can say is that it's the "shock" being absorbed by my lumbar spine. Hmmmm I get that, but why in craps sake is it happening with each head movement and I'm the only one with it!? Really freaks me out! I shouldn't have ANY more stenosis holding my spinal cord captive.
Anyone have this and/or had their doc comment? Any way to help it??? I'm dying with this sensation and afraid to move anything!!! Thanks!!!
