Gait issue and nerve compression

Clumsygirl profile image

To all of you struggling with gate, see a neurologist if you haven't already. I had an ataxia gait and it was pretty bad. An MRI showed an arachnoid cyst in my spine from T1 to T10 that was compressing my spinal cord and thus the nerves, causing the issue. After removal I could walk a bit better and have been steadily improving but don't think it will ever be the same.
