I am new to the group so will introduce myself quickly: I had symptoms for many years but thought it was normal. Then started getting burning sensation in my feet which turned to peripheral neuropathy. Tinnitus followed and then lost the ability to run due to reflex and balance issues. Eventually MRI revealed 25mm CM and due to progression of symptoms was advised to have surgery. So that was done in October last year and after about three months was feeling top of the world with many symptoms getting better, could sort of run again, regained some sensation in feet, balance was improving to the point where I was exercising again etc. THEN suddenly turned around and symptoms are getting worse again. Went for check up MRI and surgeon says it was a complete success with brain in a more natural position and only slight pressure still present at the back. So that’s my intro … and I have lots of questions and hopefully some answers for others.
