Does your child have a limp?

Postby jsmommy » Thu Sep 06, 2007 6:26 pm

I have been told today that my child is rare b/c he has a limp and he has a syrinx that covers 50% of his lower spinal cord. I dont believe that this has never been seen and I dont believe that this doctor has any clue as to what he is doing. I am going to go to a doctor that does now of course but I just wandered if anyone else has had a limp or massive leg pain with this. I have a two yr. old. Thank you!

My two chiari boys do not have a syrinx, but both do limp a bit. It's not terribly noticeable, but it is there.
