I have had it since 2004. It is post traumatic and sometimes I feel like it has completely taken over my and my fiance's lives.
I have Syringomyelia, Syringomyelia does not have me.
Syringomelia symptoms come on suddenly after a fall or minor trauma. Symptoms include but are not limited too:
Inability to regulate body temperature
Loss of sensitivity to hot and cold
Numbness and tingling
...Loss of Bowel and bladder control
Paralysis (in severe cases, quadriplegia)
Chronic severe headaches
