hello to all, my story is very similar to everybodys, we all have different symptoms but are very much down the same track, headaches, dizzyness, blurry vision, light headed, and some viral problems, im 24 years old and was diagnosed with an arachnoid cyst about 18 months ago due to haveing loss of sensation on my left side of body every now and then, these episodes would only last between 2-20 mins. i have an amazing nurologist and neurosurgeon,the best part is they both have a awsome relationship being they both work in the same hospital and have for many years, the key to getting the answers and results you want is by all means having the write people wanting to help you, i cant ask for anything more with my doctors they do all they can to help me. it all started with my genral gp wanting me to get the best help so he sent me to these doctors knowing they were the best within my area, i did have to travel alot further than id liked but its for the best that i receive the best treament i can get, my advice is if your not happy with your treatment please dont just hang around waiting for it to come to you go out there and seek what you want so it can make you feel at ease once and for all, we all deserve a good night sleep and to feel like we are free and not trapped from these medical difficultys.. im currently still having mri tests every 6-12 mnths and as of late my ears have been a bit funny lately just dont feel right so im booked in to go down to melbourne again and see if my cyst has grown in the last year, i feel very comftable that my doctors will get to the bottom of the problem, i also feel pressure on my skull from time to time, my cyst is ina very lucky spot on my brain its on the outside between my brain and my skull so it can be easily removed if need be, i will also feel very comfatable with my neurosurgeon if it does need to be removed i trust him with my life so to speak literally. i do want it removed to put my life at ease but i will trust his opinion if and when i come to that situation after these latest tests, finall words are please seek a doctor being a surgeon or neurologolist that you feel comfatable with, that will work with you and not against you.... take care everybody and i wish all the best for everybody and there different circumstances. :)
