Why Did I Get Cauda Equina Syndrome?

Why Did I Get Cauda Equina Syndrome?Cauda equina syndrome can be have a number of different underlying causes and can develop either suddenly or gradually over time. However, if treated in time, deterioration can be halted and recovery may even be possible.

Causes of cauda equina syndrome

If you are suffering with cauda equina syndrome, it is likely that you had prior back problems due to another condition.

The immediate causa of cauda equina syndrome is the compression or squashing of the nerves due to some form of condition or deformity in the lumbar region distorting the space within the spinal canal.

This compression can be caused by a variety of other conditions:

Deterioration from CESi to CESR

It is also possible that you have developed complete cauda equina syndrome (CESR) because your early symptoms were either is misdiagnosed or simply not treated with sufficient urgency.

If a patient attends their GP or A&E service with the early symptoms of cauda equina syndrome they should undergo an emergency MRI and, if the diagnosis is confirmed and they still retain some degree of bladder control, emergency decompression surgery.

If your early symptoms – perhaps bilateral leg pain and weakness, urinary difficulties, with some loss of sensation between the legs – were not diagnosed promptly and you underwent surgery too late to make much difference, it may be that you now have complete cauda equina syndrome due to negligence on the part of your medical professional.
