    Question Intrasellar arachnoid cyst

    Hi. I was diagnosed with a 11mm x 14mm x 15mm arachnoid cyst occupying the entire sella turcia. It has flattened my pituitary against the bottom of the sella. Fter two plus years of daily nausea and headaches, my headaches have become excruciating.

    Unfortunately I have been bounced from specialist to specialist who have each prescribed medication and suggested it "was all in my head" which just makes me laugh. (As it is just that. All in my head).

    About one month ago I took myself off of all the meds they had each put me on. None helped and yet their answer was always meds.

    Does anyone have any ideas of how to get physicians to understand my strong gut feeling that though small, I feel that is cyst is the root cause?
