Tethered Spine

My spinal cord has been hurting. It feels like someone has their hand on my spinal cord and is pulling straight up on it.
I have seen my spina bifida doctor and they did x-rays. I have an MRI scheduled for August 30th. I will know if it is tethered then.
If it is tethered, the doctors said surgery would not be an option for me since I can walk. It would be too dangerous to operate on someone’s spinal cord who is able to walk.
The doctors put me on neurontin and it is helping.
