I feel a tinging at one particular spot. I'm not sure if it's related to the syringomyelia or not. I think symptoms are supposed to be below the syrinx. I've heard other people talk about symptoms in their faces, though.

tingling near the cheekbone is a sign of TMJ , if this keeps up I would go to the dr. R

Thanks guys! Roz do you know where I can find a specialist in MI? I know I have SM but not sure about CM yet. I see a neurologist this week. Luckily my PCP's father-in-law had SM so he's familiar.

Hi. I do not have TMJ or any syrinx but I get this all the time, even sharp enough to feel like electric shocks. I do have a fibro diagnosis now, which the doctor says in my case the nerves are overactive. I get them throughout my body but on the left side of the face, the cheek and chin areas.

Keep an eye on it.

I have intermittent numbness and tingling in my face. It's usually now just left side but it used to be both sides (in addition to Chiari I have cervical stenosis/myelopathy and had 3 discs ruptured back into the cord). I have had an anterior fusion and a laminoplasty in the last year and a half- it was worse before them. But I still have it on the left, usually after head turning. I have been told it's from irritation to the trigeminal nerve.

For those of you taking Topamax, this is a side effect of that. Mine comes and goes. I forget about it, till we ride on the motorcycle. When we stop for a bite or something, then any exposed skin starts to tingle. It goes away with time.

jswack - glad to see a post from you again (though I am replying a bit late to your last one)! I'm also glad to hear that although you still have symptoms, they are better than before your difficult surgeries. There is a positive to read in your post!

wendi - I have found my symptoms get much worse if I ride in/on something with a very stiff suspension. I used to be a motorcycle person but my last experience on a friend's big fast crotch rocket was fun, but left me feeling weird and with much worse symptoms for at least a day. I think my old BMW RS65 might have been ok, but other bikes are not worth the results. I had the same thing on a city bus a few days ago. Some London buses have essentially no suspension and a constant judder from the engines. After a 10 minute ride my arms ached for hours, as the shaking probably irritated the nerves in my neck that go to my hands.

Reedy: My hubby has a Harley Dresser, the most comfortable bike to ride. It has a nice cooshie seat with are rests and he has added this and that for me, but that being said, our roads In PA are filled with Pot holes that are sometimes hard to avoid. I love to ride with him and sometimes just grin and bare it and pay for it for days afterward. After all this time there are things we do that bring on the pain and that is one of them, but this is something that we do together that I don't want to give up entirely, so I just miss out a lot. He goes with his friends and leaves me home, which hurts, but I have to do it so I can get thru work the next week.

Nice to talk to you!

Sounds like the perfect bike for you! You both! You are absolutely right, it is important to keep doing things together, even at cost. And Pennsylvania roads can be really lovely, even though there are a few bumps.
(To be honest, being in a relationship means lots of sacrifices even if you don't have issues like we do, so its just part of a continuum)
