I am sorry to hear about Maggie. It is frustrating that she has this neurologic problem but the MRI did not show anything. I just came online and saw your question; I am sorry you have been waiting for an answer.Did they do a spinal tap? If there is meningitis, infection, or inflammation, or cancer in the spinal cord a spinal tap might get you a diagnosis.If this was a stroke, she might have high blood pressure; I assume they are checking her blood pressure.
Since there is no diagnosis, I might consider acupuncture and/or cold laser treatment.Does she have control of her bladder and bowels; is she urinating and defecating on her own? Is she eating?
Cold laser, like acupuncture, is a nontraditional therapy to try to stimulate nerve function.A fiborcartilaganeous embolism (FCE) might show these signs, but should show up on MRI.Degenerative myelopathy would not show up on MRI, but is usually not sudden like this.
A tumor in the spinal cord may or may not show up on MRI; a spinal tap and analysis of the fluid might be helpful.
Please let me know how she is doing, if this is helpful and if you have other questions.
I did not hear from you; how is Maggie doing?Was this helpful; do you have other questions?
Thanks for the good rating. How is Maggie doing?
I am not sure what it could be; have they taken an Xray of the hip to be sure it is not popping out of joint?
