What’s Wrong With Simon Gagne?

from Joe Smith of the St. Peterburg Times,

Gagne has seen several doctors, including local neurologist Ed Grant, and though he said there doesn’t appear to be any symptoms related to concussion, they’re still trying to get to the bottom of what’s wrong before he can move forward.

“We’re still not quite sure what’s going on,” he said.

Head athletic trainer Tommy Mulligan said the next step is a nerve conduction test today to make sure the nerve patterns are properly coming out of the neck. Mulligan said an MRI of Gagne’s cervical spine showed some fluid in the back of his neck, but they believe that’s from an old injury while Gagne was with Philadelphia, and not a cause for his current symptoms.
