    we need to know a lot more about you. Take a look af the FAQ and you will see what your initial post should contain.
    We need to know whats going on with you. With your post, I could not even begin to give you any answers.

    Not that we are going to have answers, but we need more info.

    So many folks come on here and talk about their exhausting channels, but we dont know what they are. And when people say they are weakened and dont know what to do, we dont have any baseline to compare what you are saying.

    Think if this as going in for a car service. You tell the mechanic, something is wrong, thats it, nothing more. No one can work on problems with that little information. Give us something we can think about

  • I'd like to hear about other people's experience with a synovial spinal cyst L4-L5 area. Neurosurgeon says it's simple, just needs to be removed, 4 weeks recovery, back to all normal activities. Cyst caused by arthritic joint which will probably be compromised. Help!!!
  • Sounds a lot like my symptons, although I don't have any tongue issues. Have you seen a doctor? What have you done so far?
  • they are ruling out ms...i have no lesions in my spine...i will be going for evoke potentials but it is most likely not ms which is good news. the mri of the thoracic spine said i have severe degenerative overgrowth of the lumbar facets at L4L5 and mild multilevel degenerative lumbar spondylosis
    does anyone have these problems , i am walking with a walker now and am quite concerned this is serious, have anyone needed surgery for this type of problem?
