Syrinx- C5-T5.

I am a 51 year old female. I have been having problems with memory, fatigue, numbness/tingling in (face,hands,arms,feet) 1-7 spasms everyday in (rib area, inner thighs, face, neck, feet & hands) for over 10+ years. Been through many test. Doctors say I have fibromyalgia.
In November I started falling, like I tripped but nothing is there. My left ear is having sharp pain and back of my head burning and itch on the same side. My arm feels like I have a vice grip squeezing it. The neurologist did an mri looking for MS and found a syrinx C5 to T5. He stated it’s nothing to worry about because I was probably born with it. Sent me to a neurosurgeon. Neurosurgeon did another mri and X-ray. He stated I have  degenerative disc disease and will need surgery soon. But not to worry about the syrinx because it is nothing.
I need a doctor or someone with knowledge about a syrinx.
