Ive been in pain for 4 yrs everyday. My MRI said Tarlov Cyst and the excrutiating back / butt pain is awful. Looking for people who have this or who have had any treatment for this condition. Ive been to 6 doctors and they all give me a different diagnosis. Even though MRI says TCD they say something else. I cant take anymore. I cant sit, drive etc. It kills me. Help if you have this painful condition:(

  • Well I had a tarlov cyst surgery and I am much better but never as before but enough to live a lifeNobody understands the problem that is the worst part of this problemI recomend that you look for the right doctor and try to have surgerySincerely DESI understand this problem very well, I've had hip/back pain for 4 years, and just had an MRI that showed I had a TC that measures 2.5mm, I go to the doctor in 11 more days, I hope they know how to treat this. It hurts so much to sit, drive and the pain even wakes me up at night. I'm a 54 year old woman who wants to stay active. Glad your surgery worked out
