Re: Tarlov Cyst

Welcome to the board. I'm sorry you are in pain and having difficulty with Workman's comp.

I'm not sure you have been given accurate information concerning Tarlov cysts. What causes Tarlov cysts has not been proven scientifically, but there are known conditions that create increased pressure in the spinal fluid. This increases the flow of the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) into the cysts, which causes them to get bigger and results in symptoms.

Trauma to the spinal cord, an increase in the CSF pressure, or a blockage of the CSF can result in cyst formation. This trauma can be caused by things such as a difficult childbirth, falls, automobile accidents, heavy lifting, and epidurals.

It is entirely possible that your bladder problems are a result of the irritation to the sacral nerve or nerves as a result of the Tarlov cyst.

There are a number of very good websites that will give you detailed information about Tarlov cysts.

Good luck to you. I hope you are able to get your issues resolved.
