Unhappy headaches with cyst on cervical spine

Hi, I didn't usually suffer from headaches till recently. I've had a cyst or lump on my cervical spine for a while now and recently it has gotten bigger. I'm starting to get really bad headaches and neck pain and upper back pain and running low grade fever. I don't know if these syptoms are all caused from this cyst or not. The cyst is connected to my spine right in the middle of my neck. Has anyone had this before? what is it? and what did you do for it? Thanks!!!! Becky

I've had an ovarian cyst and i was having headaches like crazy, because i was having bad pain down in my private, i had schudle to have surgery to get it removed but during that time he had to give me something to relieve some of the pain until i had surgery, i had surgery this year in april to get it removed.

I was just wondering what type of cyst you had on your spine? My daughter has cysts on her spine and YES they can cause headaches, severe headaches. I am not sure if your cyst is the same as my daughters though.

Hi Laura, I am not sure what kind of cyst it is, I have not been to a doctor yet. I get cyst all the time as well as boils. I just know it's right in the middle of my neck on the bone. Sometimes I can't put my head back because it hurts too bad. I need to see a doctor but money is hard at this time. What kind of cyst does your daughter have? Sorry it took so long to write but I haven't checked in a while since I haven't had any responses. Becky

Hi Sexyh, Sorry it took so long to write back, I haven't checked lately because I haven't been getting any responses. Sorry to hear that you had a ovarian cyst, haven't had that before. I bet it was painful. I always get cyst on my skin ( arms and legs) i had one on my breast I had to get removed. I've never had one on my spine so I was a little nervous. Are you doing better? any problems now? I'll talk to you later. Becky

My daughter has what is called a syrinx. Sometimes called a cyst, or tumor. It is a fluid collection in the spinal cord. It can cause a whole lot of symptoms, including moderate to severe headaches. Another name for these syrinx is, or shall I say the more medical name is syringohydromyelia. Is your cyst on the inside or outside? The syrinx are inside.
Sorry it took me awhile to respond. I have been away from the board. If there is any other way I can help don't hesitate to post.

Laura

Hi Laura, My cyst is on the outside but it's bigger than a quarter. It's right under my hair line and feels like it's on the bone or spine. It's pretty big inside too. I have no clue what it could be. I'm sorry to hear your daughter has that. What do the doctors do for it? I bet she is in alot of pain. I get bad headaches, neck pain and stiffness and upper back and shoulder pain. I don't know if it's all connected but I really think it is. I've only had these pains since I've had this cyst. I'm wondering if maybe it's putting pressure on the nerves or something. Well I hope your daughter feels better. Becky

Thanks Becky, I hope you feel better too. Well surgery is one option, and dealing with it is another option. We go to the neurologist in Oct for a follow up MRI. My daughter has a rather large medical history. Pain is ok for the most part, some days are better than others. We try to limit what she does. But you can only limit a 7 yr old so much, lol.Anyway, I hope you feel better soon. Talk later,
Laura

Hi Hollygirl,
I have two choroid plexus cysts and have been experienceing headaches for a couple of years now. Cysts can cause all kinds of problems. Since I am not going to let them drill into my head I have opted for alternative treatments. Accupucture, Cranial Sacral treatments (which have worked the best so far) and I see a chiropractor who specializes in Nuerological disorders. I have changed my diet, no dairy, no foods with msg, or diet sweetners. Fresh friut, veggies and lots and lots of water. Green Tea and supplements like Co enzyeme Q10, Milk thistle, vitamin E, B vitamins and calicum. Good luck.
Kris

Hi Becky,
The headache are better, but still there. On days when we are hit with intense storms they definately let me know they are still there. But my worst days are now what used to be a good day before so I am just looking ahead to the light at the end of my tunnel. I am using this whole situation as a learning experience and a wake up call from my body to take better care of it. It's the only one I have so nothing but the best goes in from now on. As the saying goes, you are what you eat. I also know the body can heal itself of anything provided we give it what it needs, physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Not to sound preachie. I have change much of my lifestyle and how I look at life and the oppurtunities it sends me, no matter the form it comes in. I have met some very interesting people along this journey and I don't think I would change a thing. In the end, all will be alright. Blessings to you. Hope your feeling better and I will keep you in my prayers. You might try a Naturopathic Doctor or a Holistic one or at least read up on them and there theory on health. They tend to look at the whole picture and treat the whole person instead of just symtoms.

BEANNACHT

By John O’Donohue

On the day when the weight deadens
on your shoulders and you stumble,
may the clay dance to balance you.
And when your eyes freeze behind the gray window
and the ghost of loss gets into you,
may a flock of colors, indigo, red, green and azure blue
come to awaken in you a meadow of delight.
When the canvas frays in the curach of thought
and a stain of ocean blackens beneath you,
may there come across the waters
a path of yellow moonlight to bring you safely home.
May the nourishment of the earth be yours,
may the clarity of light be yours
may the fluency of the ocean be yours,
may the protection of the ancestors be yours.
And so, may a slow wind work
these words of love around you,
an invisible cloak to mind your life.

Hi Kristeen, Sorry it took so long to write back. For the past two weeks I haven't had any problems, knock on wood. My cyst is still here but it hasn't been giving me any problems. I hope you feel better. I will also keep you in my prayers. I've been fighting ear infections and bronchitis. I'm finally starting to get over that. Hope I stay well for a while anyway. Only a week left till school starts, So i'll be able to rest more when my kids aren't here. I'll talk to you later. Becky
