General Satisfaction score :
Treato analyzes billions of patient discussions to understand what patients are saying about their experience with regard to their treatments, diseases and side effects. Treato algorithmically identifies patients' positive experiences about medications within their Web posts, for example acne that cleared up, high blood pressure that was reduced, a certain drug that "worked", and so forth. Treato aggregates all of these discussions to calculate how many positive patient posts each medication received, relative to other drugs. Note that positive patient posts about medications are always aggregated in relation to a specific condition, since the same medication may be used for more than one condition.

Arachnoid cyst
My name is Tracy and I have an arachnoid cyst in the posterior fossa and occumpaning the right cerebellopontine angle of the brain. I was diagnosed with this in 2001 and have had a shunt placed from my brain to my stomach to help release some pressure. I find even fourteen years later I still have the symptoms but it's hard to get a doctor to listen, even with my history. I have started to get memory loss and am afraid to get a ct scan done.

I fully understand where you are coming from. I had Arachnoid cyst in the thoracic T 1-3 spinal cord for years and I can say it was horrible no one could understand my symptoms until an MRI finally found what was debilitating me for years. Remember you are your own advocate. Find a doctor who specializes in this field. who may be better able to help you. Good Luck
