    Tarlov Cysts?

    About a year ago my thorasic mri showed degenerative disc disease, multiple tarlov cysts(which they referred to as root sleeve cysts)laced through the spinal area. My Lumbar MRI showed multiple bulging discs, my cervical all discs are degenerative and I have facet joint disease. So Since I have constant sciatica in the left leg down to the feet, just recently the lower left back aches could this all be from the cysts even tho my bulging discs do not show anything as to why I have had sciatic pain for over 6 yrs now? I just recently had what they call a seps test, like dermosensory something and am waiting the results as to whether this is from radiculopathy or perepheral.I am also being treated for pernicious anemia(B-12 deficiency)Just what are Tarlov cysts and are they like arachnoid cysts? I have not been able to find anything on it.
