TOPIC: Can muscle spasms be detected on an x-ray

Re: Can muscle spasms be detected on an x-ray 2 years, 7 months ago #1822

Thank you Dr Corenman, I appreaciate your time very much. I was reading abt the symptoms you wrote, I do have some stiffness across my shoulders , and pain on my back, My hands actually cannot feel texture on my skin/body anywhere, my skin actually feels like latex all over, I do feel weight, and shape, I do feel texture on anything else besides my body ,on clothing, objects I can feel the actual textur of that , but its my body dont feel right at all. My hands have pain, shooting pain, I have a shooting pain in my left arm, the bones on my fingers are painful , When I lift my hands above my head my shoulder blades are tightened, my left leg my muscle above my knee is extremly tight, my left foot has pain as well, even my the Syrinx I have is between 2mm and 3 mm can it cause any of these symptoms ? When the Radiologist wrote my Mri in 2005 he said it was 2mm x 2mm in width , the report I had previous in February was from another MRI location wrote it was 2mm to 3 mm , do that nessacary the Syrinx did change in size ? but he wrote it was still stable , So I am confused if it changed in size, can they actually know exactly the width or its an estimated guess. Thanks . I am just really scared abt what is gng on inmy body and cant seem to find anyone that can explain whats happening or finding out if theres anything else wrong.Also I want to mention that my face muscles are etremly tight, its hard at time to announce words if I am crying or smiling or laughing , I am scared and worried if any of these symptoms are permanent , my face at times senses its numb , but its not , but very tight , could that because of the neck causing these symptoms ? My hands and Face symptoms are the worst for me on top of everything else. Thanks again for reading this .

The syrinx by report is small. Find a good neurologist to consult with. A thorough examination will help to identify if you have symptoms from this syrinx but my bet would be that this was an unexpected and asymptomatic finding on the MRI that does not relate to your symptoms. Again- find a good neurologist to give an opinion.
