The spinal cord is one of the most important organs of your body. The spinal cord is saddled with the responsibility of coordinating the activities of the body's nervous system alongside the brain. The spinal cord works hand-in-hand with the brain to supply; send and process various information through neurones and nodes across your body cells. There would be so many problems if there is a tiny issue detected in your spinal cord. Below are a few signs your spinal cord may be injured.
The spinal cord helps promote coordination in your body which is why you might feel prolonged muscle weakness when you have a spinal cord injury. Alongside the muscle weakness, you will also experience lack of coordination; stiffness; spasms; and overactive reflexes. Overall, you won't be able to coordinate your muscles in ways you'd expect to.
Another sign of spinal cord injury is general body weakness. You are bound to feel tired and fatigued. Fainting also sets in because there is lack of adequate blood supply to your brain and your spinal cord.
Leaking bladder and problems with urine retention are usually signs of spinal cord injury. This is usually associated with a reduced ability to control your bladder. You find out that you keep urinating without control.
Shortness of breath
People with spinal cord injuries tend to experience shortness of breath as well as reduced lung capacity. They find it hard to stay in crowded environments; and a little speck of dust could irritate their lungs.
Even with all these signs mentioned; it is always best to consult a doctor before jumping into conclusion over your spinal cord. Ensure you visit a well acclaimed doctor for proper diagnosis. Then also follow treatment accordingly.
With that aside, you also need to cultivate good eating habits. Eat fruits and vegetables on a regular basis; and watch your overall health bubble and blossom beautifully.
