Колатерална штета од цауда екуина синдрома

Walk This Way...

Као што знате из потребе, или знајући некога ко има, Цауда коњски синдром, чини ругло од вашег пешачкој ход. I've described myself as walking like Frankenstein. Сада долази ново, забавне ствари које је урадио ЦЕС.

Осећај је почела да се врати на странама мојих глежњева. Као што је, I've noticed a different type of pain on the outside of my right ankle. My wife looked at it and said there is a small bump there.

Прво, I thought that my shoe must be rubbing me. But the bump was hard. Of a morning, before my feet swell during the day, there is almost no pain unless it is touched. As the feet swell my shoe comes in contact with the bump and it gets progressively painful through the day despite my pain meds. It peaks at about a 3 and affects my gait.



I went to a podiatrist this morning. Diagnosis - probable torn tendon. This "nodule" is just what to expect from this condition. Surprise, surprise! The Doctor was actually aware of CES and knew quite a bit about it.

Next up, an MRI to confirm diagnosis and a nerve conduction test to determine extent of my nerve regeneration in the lower extremities.
