Normally, a small syrinx is an asymptomatic finding on an MRI unless it is associated with Arnold Chiari syndrome. Most radiologists know to look for that association. I am unaware of literature that notes a syrinx that switches between symptomatic and asymptomatic and would be hard pressed to imagine a situation causing that to occur.

You need a consultation with a good neurologist to help understand what is the origin of your symptoms. I can implicate many structures for the cause of your symptoms but with global symptoms. the neurologist is your first stop.
