Antibiotics and lower back pain

Postby reedy » Tue May 07, 2013 5:36 am

Interesting breakthrough reported here:
http://www.guardian.co.uk/society/2013/ ... n-patients

This is not necessarily syrinx related, but important to know about.

In my case, I got my syrinx from a bacterial infection on the dura of my spinal cord (epidural abscess). It was Staph. aureus, so a different bug than reported in this study. But indeed it went in to the discs and vertebrae, which then collapsed and created problems for me in the cervical region.

I'm curious if the Birmingham link included Graham Flint's NS practice,, in which case the SM connection will have been explored.

There was also an article in Dutch medical magazine about it. A great article, thank you reedy!
