19 Possible Causes for Sciatica, Spinal Canal and Spinal Cord Meningioma

  • Sciatica

    Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed the presence of a spinal T11 meningioma in the left postero-lateral compartment of the spinal canal; at this level, the spinal cord[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] While this test is positive in about 90% of people with sciatica, approximately 75% of people with a positive test do not have sciatica.[en.wikipedia.org] So the exact occurrence of sciatica is unknown. Race: Sciatica has no known predilection to race or cast.[symptoma.com]
