I called the NS who said they had seen a Syrinx ( of course she did not have her notes typed up yet so she ws just going by what she remembered) She siad the the possible Syrinx (note the possible) is at C5-6 area. There are no Chiari formations but a definite atrophy of the cerebellum. No mention of atropying of the pons or olives etc. They are sending me to a Neurologist but his specialty seems to be stroke. So now I am not sure what to do. I do have an appointment with my GP tomorrow so I guess I will talk things over with him but I feel pretty lost. While the pain in my shoulder and arm has been with me for a year these other findings have just been found and I am trying to learn enough to talk to the doctors knowledgeably.
For the last week I have been nauseated to the point of actually throwing up a few times but I dont' know if this is part of the overall symptoms or just a red herring.
