My name is Lynne and 6mths ago, after extreme nausia and vomitting, I was given a CT scan and MRI (or MRV) and told I had an arachnoid cyst on my brain stem. The Dr. more or less told me that it was just a coincidence it was found and my symptoms were asymptomatic. Therefore, they have done nothing for me so far and the symptoms have become so bad that I cannot work (or do much of anything at all). The symptoms include: bad headaches, pains in ears and jaw, swelling of face and neck, tingling and numbness of different areas, mucsle spasms, dizziness, nausia, diahrea, and joint and muscle aches and pains.
