    New sacral sensations please help

    I didn't know where is the right place to post this but anyways

    I'm C6 (sensory incomplete) 6 years post . Male.

    I've been getting new sensations in my sacral segments and it's freaking me out. Could it be good news?

    It is not painful at all.

    I can feel 'existence' in my private part, its hard to explain. I feel buzzing and like it's pushing...really weird. I can feel the gauze rubbing on the tip when my care giver caths me and it's also connected to a feeling of numbness in my trunk muscles. I have the fullness sensation and can feel my testicles. Sometimes when the sensation down there comes it triggers an anal sensation which is also new .

    What could it be?
    Good news?

      I'm C6/C7 (sensory incomplete as well), 9 years post. Over the years, some areas have gained more sensation, which all-in-all is a good thing to me. And I do get some funny contractions down there that I can't explain. Luckily, over time I have been able to distinguish a random rogue sensation from oh shit I need to get to the bathroom. The only down side from sensory return for me has been a little more overall pain and discomfort.

        Thanks for the reply.

        I still believe that it could be a start of some kind of return and recovery.

        Waiting for more helpful responses and experiences.

          Its probably time to see your rehabilitation doctor and get a work up that re-evaluates your injury and sensory levels.

            Yes, I will talk to him.

            But isn't return of sensations in those area vital? Like , could it trigger motor return?

                Sometimes motor return follows sensory return, but not always. Repeating your ASIA/ISNCSCI exam would clarify what is happening with your return.

                  I'm T9, but have had similar experience over almost 9 years. I have had some motor return, usually after a major increase in pain leading to sensory improvement. Even though motor gains have been minimal, it's amazing what a small improvement can mean for better functionality. Wishing the best for you!
