Question Need help finding specialist/expert for syringomyelia in North Texas

Hi,
Can anyone send me a list of experts or specialist in syringomyelia in N. Texas or surrounding states. So far my syrinxes are to narrow to operate, but lengthening. I am having alot of pain and numbness. Found a pain doc, but need someone to help with numbness. I drive for a living and can't find any employment that doesn't involve lifting also. Told not to lift over 10-15 lbs. I need to find a resource that will help me retrain and keep some kind of income coming in. I have 1 child in college and 2 in highschool. I don't know how to get disability, at least while I retrain. I can't walk away from my job or my family goes under and I am afraid I am endangering others. I am an at will employee so there is no assistance from my employer. My supervisor literally puts her hands over her ears when i have tried to explain this. If I can't drive they don't care.

Any ideas?????

Hi I was just wondering if you ever found a good doctor? I have the same problems. When my syringomyelia was stumbled upon by accident it was because I had sustained a neck/back traumatic injury in the Army. They medically retired me and sent me on my way. My pain is a lot worse and I don't want to end up peeing myself or in a wheel chair because my VA hospital is not very good at listening to things that aren't very common. I have been out almost 3 years and they have never even done a mri The Army attest did one every 90 days to keep tabs on it. Not seeing it in 3 years has me scared that it may have really grown in size, especially since my pain is worse and I feel like I can't hold any body heat most of the time. Any help you could give me would be great

Hey everyone, I would also like to know if anyone has been to any of the doctors listed and how their experience went? Theresa, have you found anyone yet? I am also in North Texas (DFW) and would like to hear someones personal experience before I visit a doctor as I will be paying out of pocket and cant really "doctor shop". My symptoms have recently got very bad and I need help, it's causing a lot of grief. I know this is an old thread but any help will be appreciated

No, I'm in the same boat as you when it comes to having to
Pay out of pocket Did you see anybody yet? If you don't mind me asking, what are you doing as far as pain management?
