I was just diagnosed with a small syrinx

My symptoms are full body numbness trouble walking and have problems feeling cold. No plantar reflex. My nuerologist said it was small and it couldn't be caused by the syrinx my question is should I go to get a second opinion at a nuerosurgeon who specializes in chiari and also in the spine. He may be to help me better. I just think he will know more than the nuerologist!

  Deff make sure you are seeing a true Chiari specialist to help you with both the Chiari and Syringomyelia....as they are related conditions.

Get a 2nd and 3 rd opinion if needed.
