I have been told that my nervous system does not send a message to some of the muscles in my back and that when I move, some muscles move and others do not, tearing the muscles that don't get the correct signal to move. This occurs about twice a year now and is debilitating.
They say it is neurological and that a spinal tap may be in order. Have you or anyone out there heard of this disorder, and if so, what is it called? They say it is probably do to an old trauma to my back.

Thanks, Madhatter :confused:

  • Call the doctor's office, ask to speak to the nurse and have her spell out the diagnosis to you and explain what it means. We need a lot more info.
