Hey there my name is Fazel and about a year and half ago I was in a car accident as a passenger with one of my co workers we were hit in the back as the accident occurred four pieces of small glass shot threw and got stuck in my back hitting me in several places I was rushed to hospital and didn't have surgery but was examined and treated. My doctors said there was some spinal fluid leakage but no nerve damage so generally my Right leg was much weaker than my Left and I learned to get the strength back after several months in my right leg but over the year I have had a weird tingling and burning weird feeling in my left leg and it feels as if my left leg is always numb like 24/7 I have no hot or cold feeling in it which is so weird when I step into the shower n it's cold I feel that it's water but not a reaction of it being cold if that makes sense...I recently went into a doctor to get a MRI and about a week ago I got the results which were as stated "A Recent MRI of the Thoracic spine revealed an area of increased signal intensity in the Right lateral aspect of the Thoracic spinal Cord consistent with an area of Gliosis and likely a penetrating injury in this location. There was a small CSF Collection in the Epidural space anterior to the thecal Sac from C7 to T6 most consistent with a Dural Tear." I DONT know what any of that means please if anyone can help me with any suggestions or clarification I have not used a forum before and this matter is stopping me from performing my day to day activities in all reality I feel as if I honestly have One leg because have the time my leg feels weak and numb and so weird I skateboard and I am sponsored and this matter has stopped me from going on trips and performing to the best of my ability I'm honestly heartbroken Today my doctor prescribed me 100mg of Apo Gabapentin and he said to try this and see if the problem goes away I took one tablet earlier as its 9pm here I live in Winnipeg Canada if anyone has some info or help for me I would be so grateful thank u for reading my dilemma God bless!
