  • I am not sure, I've just been diagnosed with "spina bifida occulta" at 18 years of age! I have not lost all feeling but I do get a pins and needles sensation in my legs now and then. The doctor never explained what it does, is it dangerous etc. I wish I knew more about it, but hope I don't lose feeling.
