Arachnoid Cyst
Sep 10, 2003
I am a 36 year old female, 5 weeks ago I had an MRI revealing a space occupying lesion typical of an Arachnoid Cyst located in the left side Posterior Fossa. This lesion has been measured as being 3.5 x 2.8 x 3.75 I am currently still experiencing severe headaches in which it is a sharp difinitive pain radiating from the occipital region to the vertex, I feel increased pressure. I am also experincing numbness and tingling of my face including my lips and parts of my tongue, numbness in my hands and lower extremities, on really intense days I have an increased problem with gait resulting in falling without cause. I saw a neurologist today, in which I had asked for information in reference to the Arachnoid Cyst, he stated that it was incidental and there was no need to look at the MRI films which I had brought with me. His answer was I am experincing is a analgesic rebound headache, when questioning and trying to get an answer to this lesion, he asked me to leave his office stating that the research I have done has made me an expert. Can these symptoms be a result of the cyst in this area. Any feedback that I can recieve would be of a great relief.
