: Hello everyone, new to board. I'm looking for help from anyone who knows anything on Arachnoid cyst. My doctors have said that an Arachnoid cyst is usually in the brain but in very rare cases they can be in the spine. My is at T-2 to T-12. I have had surgery twice the 1st was to totaly remove the cyst. Then in less than 2years they were doing surgery again, the cyst had returned. The 2nd surgery they drained and put a shunt in it. Now less than 2 years since my last surgey the doctors have found another mass on my spinal cord. I also have a condition called kyphosis from the laminectomy at T-2 to T-12. Is ther someone that has had this problem that would like to talk. This problem has been going on for 8 years now. Can someone tell me if the nightmare I'm living,, Will I wake up!!!!!! Please help. Ant thing would help...

Hi! Mellissa, I don't know if I have your problem,I haven't gotten that far in my testing. I have a pitiutary cyst , kidney cyst,nasal cyst and many other smaller one in my body as well as fatty tumors. I have alot of symptoms that i thought were muscle problems but after a muscle biopsy was neg. I'm left with no answers. I was wondering what are the symptoms of a spinal cyst? You know cyst are a pain because they always come back. I've been going throught my strange problems for 8 years also and have gone throught many emotional phases of this. I try not to let myself get to far down in the dumps because sometimes theres nobody to pick you up. I also have my faith too. I am determined to press on because there is always hope. Hange in there ,you are in my prayers.
