The Title :
Please read this story if you have read that you have “Tarlov Cysts” on your MRI report, and your back pain is worsening. You admit that you are noticing such things happening to you such as the fact that you cannot sit for long periods without feeling like you are sitting on a rock. It hurts to bend down, twist, stretch, or lift even a half-gallon of milk.
It is not likely you will find ANY doctor in NE Ohio, or indeed in the entire state of Ohio, who will explain to you what it means to have symptomatic Tarlov Cysts. But, they will tell you that they do not operate on them.
Please join several Tarlov Cyst Facebook Groups and read the posts and ask questions – and lots of them! You will receive a more well-rounded education from other members who are willing to share their journey, and who also suffer from this debilitating disease.
I personally feel that any Tarlov Cysts are like ticking time bombs in our bodies even if they do not initially present with pain. Having one fall or being in one auto accident can change it all for a person.
Please be your own advocate no matter where you live. The doctors may turn away from you, but those who are also suffering from this horrid chronic pain disease will not.
