Discs gone in neck from C2 3 4 5 6 and 7 with bilateral stenosis at c3 4 ŕight side foramen and bilateral stenosis at C4 5 left side foramen....symptoms have been going on for years!
Have been over the years diagnosed with Raynards ME urge/stress incontinence carpal tunnel syndrome (operation to release didn't work in right wrist so didn't have the other done)
Flip flop right foot walk as if on clouds numb feet legs heavy....
Osteoarthritis plus osteoporosis left hip needs replacing but over last couple years I have had 2 episodes of paralysis right side went 1st then this time last year left side but thought I was having heart attack ....doctor sent for CT scan and low and behold this is how it was discovered!
Having read some of your journeys to get a diagnosis plus we all seem to have similarities in symptoms.....
Bladder went about 10 years ago but due to having a subarachnoid cyst on brain Urologist put it down to
One of the 1st things that go when problems stem from brain is signals ( messages sent to bladder)
However this doesnt explain the rest of what's been going on...
Swallowing difficulties clumsy hands pain is a nightmare
Blurred vision headaches to a point feels like brain is been shrink wrapped
Taking deep breaths difficult
Walk has if drunk been counting in head for years 1 2 1 2 make sure I pick my feet up literally wading through treacle comes to mind 😉
I can feel my neck slowly disappearing into shoulders hmmm
No neck Julie comes to mind 😯
Plus lots of other symptoms along the way it's a good job I have a bizarre sense of humor ! It's taken away my former life and left me with this which I am still coming to terms with.....
See spinal surgeon on 14th this month so will know what the next steps are
Just thought I'd share my journey with you all
