Possible Cerebral Palsy?
Sorry for the long winded-ness!
I am a 27 year old with muscle issues since birth. Symptoms being stiffness of lower limps (particularly calves) this gets worse in the cold and when tired. I walk on my tippy toes on one side and use my toes for balance which has caused me to grow a bunion on one foot. These things do not get in the way of my day to day life but it does affect me emotionally. I constantly try to walk 'normal' (I have a limp and tend to stick my bottom out making my walk 'duck like')
I have had an MRI after going to a foot and ankle specialist who said I have the symptoms of someone with Cerebral Palsy which in all my life has never been mentioned before - which after hearing I thought - yes! this makes so much sense!
Anyway - the MRI came back with only a slight scarring on my spinal cord - is it possible to have CP so mild it does not show on an MRI scan? Could a small bit of scarring be the root cause of all my issues? I feel like I could be getting worse as I am being less active now out of school ect - so will be getting back to more exercise as I do believe this helps.
If anyone out there has had something similar to myself or have another route I could maybe try I would really appreciate if you could get in touch
PS hope everyone is keeping safe
