very weird but what's your opinion

Postby erinc14 » Sat Jan 14, 2012 9:03 am

first i'll tell you i'm a quadriplegic and am quite hunched over .

i had the procedure in march 2011. since that time i've had major cracking of my spine 3 times (like when someone cracks their knuckles ) and for a second i think maybe my back is broken . 8O i never had this happen before . is it maybe because of sudden improved circulation .

Not very weird, MarkW's opinion

Postby MarkW » Sat Jan 14, 2012 11:15 am

My thoughts are that the muscle spasm you have is lessening, very slowly and very slightly. Less spasm would allow your spine to re-allign and produce the noises you hear. Massage and gentle physical therapy (physiotherapy in UK) may help.
You are not the first person to experience reduced spasm after de-stenosis.

I don't know...my neck cracks all the time.
Maybe blood flow is a reason for your back cracking. I hope its a positive sign as opposed to anything sinister.
Are you on blood thinners?

Funny you should mention it, I also have my lower back "click" sometimes when I straighten my back, never happened before angioplasty. It does not hurt or anything just like two bones rubbing each other, crack. No explanation that I can think of and I had no improvements from the angioplasty.

The cracking can most likely be attributed to the sound of ligaments sliding and popping against bone. If you are hunched over, the cracking can signify an increase range of motion. In yoga, persons who have limited thoracic mobility, who then increase their range of motion from the activity, can cause their sternum to "crack" during certain exercise.

Erin,
When were you diagnosed with MS? Are you SP or PP?
Thanks for sharing your situation, I am sure there are many other people on this site in a similar circumstance xx

i was diagnosed in 1994 and couldn't walk 8 months later . i did have symptoms before like vertigo or a numb leg, but they would go away and i would just forget about it . people didn't talk about ms like they do now. it's like it was being kept secret . i even had odd things happen when i was a kid.

It seems like you have had quite an aggressive form of MS.

I know what you mean about keeping it a secret.
I am still in the closet with my MS (except for close family and friends) there is still a stigma I fear attached to it amongst those that don't have it/understand it.
Thats why I love this site.....no-one feels they should have to be secretive.

i meant it was like neurologists and ms society were keeping it a secret . never a commercial , never in the news. until i was diagnosed i never heard of it.

Oh I see.......

My aunt had MS so I was always very aware of it...
But you are right it wasn't publicised that much at all...nowadays it is spoken about quite a lot.
I have seen it mentioned in films, celebrities with MS are coming out more (including Romney's wife) which is a good thing... I do wonder if its becoming more prevelant hence the bigger interest.

It seems everyone knows someone with MS.

Have you asked your regular doctor or your neurologist? They would be able to examine you and give an answer.
