Symptoms of Cauda Equina Syndrome are all too often misdiagnosed. Sometimes symptoms can be put down to a pre-existing problem, for example the result of childbirth or incontinence, or mistaken for a much less severe illness such as general back pain. The Cauda Equina, meaning “the horses tail”, is a bundle of nerves at the base of the spine which are damaged when compressed. Compression can occur due to a number of reasons, most commonly by a ruptured disc in the spine but infection, tumours or stenosis can lead to problems as well.
A diagnosis of Cauda Equina Syndrome is a surgical emergency that must not be ignored. It is a complex medical condition that requires specialist treatment.
