    I broke  C 1.  and. C 2. And have a spinal cord injury, that area basically covers the whole body. Mine is fused. What happened to you and also do you have a spinal cord injury?

  • Nothing really happened.  In January I started feeling neuropathic pain in my leg and foot and then about a month ago started to feel weakness in both legs.  No back or neck pain. I went to a NUCCA Dr who diagnosed C1 an 2 ‘misalignment’.  Finally got a neurology appt and he said the problem is in my neck and ordered a spine MRI which I’m going to in 2 days. Everything is complicated by the medical system in paralysis because of Covid.
