Arachnoid cyst
| Tracy
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 have had so many ct scans that I'm afraid it's going to cause brain cancer.,that's all I need. I just want you all to know I understand now if only the doctors will

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
