Re: Syringomyelia

Hi Kathryn,
Syringomyelia (sear-IN-go-my-EEL-ya)

The website for you to go visit is ASAP “American Syringomyelia Alliance Project”. [url="http://www.ASAP.org."]www.ASAP.org.[/url]
You will find ASAP has a wealth of useful information, including a list of recommended doctors who know what Syringomyelia is.

I have had all the symptoms of Syringomyelia since I was 5 years old, I am now 40.

I had an automobile accident in 1992 and I have been suffering from Headaches, Migraines and Back Pain ever since.

I found out I had Syringomyelia in March of 2002 (an entire decade had passed) from an MRI report of my Thoracic.

The Thoracic is an uncommon location for a Syringomyelia.
You will find that the majority of Syringomyelia’s are in the Cervical area.

At the ripe old age of 14, I went to a Chiropractor for severe back pain. I could not stand up straight and I had trouble breathing.
The Chiropractor took x-rays of my entire spinal cord and found a Syrinx in my Thoracic. My Syrinx is just opposite of my sternum. Ever since my car accident, I have had nothing but pain in my sternum.


I have just found Healthboards.com this evening and I have already made it my home page. I plan to visit often.

Good Luck,

Joseph
Still hoping for a solution
