I have recently been diagnosed with an arachnoid cyst on my medulla and cerebellum after an MRI. I have had headache, pins and needles and weakness in my left hand and foot, back pain, constant ringing in my ears and dizziness. I am exhausted much of the time.
I was admitted to hospital but when the doctor finally came to see me he said it wasn't the cyst and that it must be stress and anxiety. Well losing the use of my left leg certainly was causing me anxiety, but not the other way round! From researching online it seems many people have trouble with doctors who tell them that their cysts are asymptomatic despite the symptoms they are experiencing. Is there anyone out there with an arachnoid cyst who lives in Perth Western Australia? Can anyone recommend a neurologist who won't treat
me like I am a liar or a hypochondriac? I am getting sick of doctors who are rude and disrespectful and dismissive.
HELP! I am having severe pain in the same place, left side cerebellum. Stress has been the fall guy for over a year now and the pain is EVERY day. Worse in the morning and middle of the night. Iíve tried Excetrin, Motrin 800, Ultracet, Darvcet, Percocet, hot packs and ice packs. Nothing helps. Iíve had a scan of my carotid artery, and blood tests for infection but no diagnoses. No doctor has suggested a brain scan or MRI. As a patient can I request an MRI? Could it be a cyst? At times there seems to be a knot or lump or swelling in the area, but maybe itís just my desperation getting the best of me. I canít live with this pain much longer. Anyone out there that has experienced anything similar?
