Thank you for posting your query.
Syrinx refers to cavitation with fluid accumulation within the spinal cord
. The symptoms depend on the extent and severity of the syrinx.
There is no medical treatment for syrinx. The definitive treatments are with surgery such as syringostomy.
Also, one needs to exclude secondary causes of syrinx formation such as Chiari malformation
, tumors, infections, etc.
Please have a review with a neurosurgeon.
Please get back if you require any additional information.
