Appt tomorrow with NS to discuss possibility of a syrinx

I have an appt tomorrow with my NS. I have been having a lot of pain in my back in between my shoulder blades that radiates to underneath my left shoulder. Pain also in my left arm with weakness in that arm. Also having some h/a’s in the right temporal lobe that are always worse in the morning and seem to ease up by the afternoon but not always. The pain in my temple is like a dull constant pain that makes it hard to concentrate on whatever I am doing at the time. My heart rate has also been shooting up to the 130’s while resting on the couch. I find myself having to take a deep breath frequently like I am not getting enough air. Anyone else experience these symptoms? Plz pray for me as I am very concerned. God bless.
Love and gentle hugs,

Hi Tara:)

I have all of those exact same symptoms! I have Chiari and a syrinx, but I have been told that both are too small to be causing any of my symptoms. Yeah…right! I’m going to see a specialist soon. I’m sorry you’re having to deal with these symptoms. From what I’ve read of your story and posts, you have been through enough. If you do have a syrinx, it should start to shrink now that you’ve had decompression surgery. I’ve read that it can take awhile, but it does eventually happen most of the time. I know this is easier said than done, but try not to worry. You are stronger than you think…we all are:) I hope your appointment goes ok tomorrow. Please let us know what you find out. You’ll be in my thoughts:)



So sorry you are having these issues...Good Luck with your appt. let us know what the NS says.

In my thoughts and prayers.



Hope you have a good appointment today!
