First of all I'm sorry if this is in wrong forum but I wasn't sure where it should go.

I was wondering if there is anyone on here who is in the medical field or has any knowledge on posterior fossa arachnoid cysts. I'm asking because I have one on my brain which is prominent with mass effect but CSF is still moving freely.

I have being having lots of problems with pins and needles, fasculations, numbness, throbbing pain back of head, muscle cramps but mainly with my walking. I have severe arthritis (Grade 4) in knees, labrum tear in both hips, bulging discs at bottom of spine and spondylosis. I have been to all sorts of specialists neurologists, rheumatologists, orthopaedic but have still not really got any answers with regard to my walking. Although I have terrible pain in knees, hips and back from the arthritis the thing that is affecting me the most is an heaviness in both legs and constant nerve pain. I have just seen physiotherapist the other day who has said I have dystonia. I have been told by GP and neurologist that the finding of the posterior fossa arachnoid cyst is incidental and won't be causing a lot of the distressing symptoms I am having and won't be causing my problems walking.

However, when I google information I have noted that in America and Australia these arachnoid cysts are believed to cause a lot of the symptoms I have been having and whats more they operate on them in these countries. It appears in the UK they believe they are best left alone which is fine but I wonder whether they are just trying to trivialise it because they don't want me to ask what can be done about it.

Any input would be most appreciated by anyone in medical field or anyone who personally has one or knows anyone who has suffered the same symptoms as myself.

THIS

came up first. It seems that these cysts on the spine cause more of the tingling and leg weakness/heaviness than those on the brain. Doctors take a conservative approach to treatment. It is on your brain, they do not want to do brain surgery or even endoscopy unless there is proof this is the cause of debilitating symptoms. There does seem to be a less invasive endoscopy procedure available, though.

You could get a second opinion if you feel your concerns haven't been properly addressed by your current doctors.

I have severe arthritis in my left knee, and slightly less severe in my right. Depending on the day or sometimes weather, I have a feeling of heaviness in my legs. Compensating for the knee weakness and pain causes me to have back pain and then neck pain. It is like a domino effect, I think all caused by my knees. Your symptoms may mainly stem from your knee as well.

I've been told I need knee replacements but I am too young to have this done because I am only 48. I have degenerative disc disease as well in my lower spine and tears in my hips so obviously I am going to have problems walking but its just this is different from the burning pain. Its almost like my legs are restricted when walking, like I can't do a full stride and its not just walking it is even standing now. I get constant fasculations in my legs when at rest and awful muscle cramps. I have recently also developed a tremor in my left hand when at rest.

However, you may be right if you say you have problems with your back when your knees are at their worst. I certainly walk differently than I used to do because I know if I put too much weight on my knees they just give and a couple of times I have had meniscus tears and have had to have arthroscopies.

Like I said its just the twitching, cramping, pins and needles etc which is really getting me down and the constant throbbing on the back of my head (the reason for the brain scan). My rheumatologist has mentioned Fibromyalgia but that always seems to me to be a made up name for when they don't have a reason why things are happening. a reply to: reldra

I feel some of your experience. I hope you don't mind that I expressed my concern about you to my CREATOR.

About your situation, have you tried soaking in a hot tub or spa? For 20 years I've been learning lessons about health and mobility issues, mostly from fibromyalgia but arthritis is dead set on making sure I learn a lesson from it's presence as well. The hot tub provides much distraction from these life "lessons." LOVE

I am younger than you are and my left knee will be replaced within the year. I will be having an arthroscopy before that.

Fibromyalgia is a real disease, yet the medications for it are risky immunosupressents. You are right to question that.
Light stretching and beginner yoga can be a godsend. If you have tremors in your wrist they should be looking at Carpal Tunnel. A muscle relaxant could help, I am prescribed Cyclobenzaprine, helps me sleep through the night, too.

Oh great I will speak to my GP about that medication.

Are you in America? Its just here in the UK when it comes to knee replacements, hip replacements etc they tend to try and put people off because of age. All to do with the cost I have been told by my friend. Maybe because we have the NHS where is free. I know orthopaedic surgeon said I have bone on bone in both knees and I can't even have injections because it will just further weaken knees and that's not good when I will definitely need knee replacements at some point. They tell me knee replacement only last 15 years and they have found second time around isn't as successful.

I haven't pushed too much because I have an 8 year old son and I am a single parent. I had my child later in life when I was 40 so unfortunately I haven't got much extended family as three lots of grandparents have died since he was born. There is just my mum but she has vascular dementia and I am her main carer. I don't really know how I would manage for the first few weeks after having the surgery with regards to getting my child to school, looking after my mum etc. I am trying to last out as long as possible but it is getting harder to deal with the pain, I am already on opiates for pain and certainly don't want to go on morphine etc.

I think I will have to start pushing myself with regard to yoga etc. Just hard to do when I am having a real bad day. Thanks for your input.a reply to: reldra

sounds like your hip problems are symtpoms of femoral acetabular impingement syndrome. Your hip joints may be overgrown and scraping against each other. Thus a loss in leg mobility range and pain when walking and even standing. This could cause a tear in the labrum in your hip joints! I had surgery on both of my hips for this and it helped so much!! Sorry you have to go through this! That's about the only thing I am familiar with though not any of the major stuff :/.a reply to: anxiouswens

Yes I go for hydrotherapy each week at the hospital and when I get time such as when I went for a break with my son a couple of weeks ago I try to go in hot tub etc.

Thanks for your kind words.a reply to: donktheclown

I've just had MRI's recently on hips with the dye and I have a small labrum tear in each hip but they haven't suggested any surgery. Maybe that is what is causing all the problems. Did you get pain in groin as well? a reply to: Boomy327

I know what you mean about bad days. Try for 10-15 min of stretching. If your knee is that bad and you are turned down due to age, you should be able to appeal. It will only get worse and more difficult for you to handle daily life.

You should be in physical therapy if your knee is not being replaced.

You're welcome

I would research MSM with glucosamine and chondroitin, and take magnesium sulfate in water. Also please consider researching the Wim Hof method, and if you have the money and resources please consider Regenokine or Orthokine therapy. You can read a lot about all of those online.

I'm going to go on the deep end of the spectrum for the OP. Take what I say with a grain of salt. And for a moment suspend what you know to believe.

Parasites manifest themselves in various forms. Their basic mode of travel is through your body's intakes. What you eat, drink, breathe, apply to your skin, even what you listen to, and loan headspace to. Carcinogens comes in all formats and mediums. When your body becomes fertile enough for these illnesses to flourish, a visceral element of negative plasma energy slowly leaks into your system, catalyzing the carcinogens and giving life to abhorrent parasites, tumor, and cysts. "Naturally" occurring sweets like fruit, sweet potatoes, coconut milk, bee's honey, are some example. Anything synthetic, processed, or supplemented are deliberate corruptions of these treasures to your body. These are the GOOD sugars. Don't let drug peddling doctors scare you with the bogeyman of diabetes, if you stay vigilant to a natural diet. The good sugar is actually a miracle drug for the body. GMO companies like Monsanto are hellbent on phasing out all the nutrition of Earth's flora and fauna.

These parasites use your lymphatic system as a highway in your body to attack your immune system, via lymph nodes, and spinal column. These parasites are actually intelligent enough to transport more carcinogenic material from parts of your body high in content, to specific endocrinal outlets connected to your organs. Believe it of not, simple skin conditions like acne and pimples are the entryways for quite a number of these parasites and their kin. Many tend to force entry through your various meridians. Palms, wrists, elbows, shoulders, neck, eyes, top of your head, base of your spine/genitalia, intestinal region, solar plexus, and ears.

As other wise posters already have mentioned, look into energy work. Meditation, binaural music, Sun gazing, and foci exercises. Surround yourself in a natural environment when performing these practices collaboratively. The binaural sounds and sunray frequencies will disrupt the negative plasma and loosen the parasites grip in your system. The meditation will begin your cultivation into clean energy centers. As you refine this technique with greater control, you will actually begin to physically feel these stringy foreign bodies leak out of your body, purged through those meridians, via your skin.

If you really want to be strict in your prep, do these exercises in an open field in a park, on a sunny day with very little or no overcast. Point your focus directly into the Sun's path, close your eyes, create pressure in your sinus, below your eye region, from the top of your mouth's palate, with your tongue pressed up touching between your top gum line and palate, move this pressure up through your sinus, past your bridge of your nose and between your eyes, and as far to the top of your head as possible. Maintain this pressure as long as you can, rinse and repeat. Always start the pressure from the bottom up. If you think you did the inverse, stop and restart. Essentially, this exercise is the kinesthetic push and purge of the negative materials to the uppermost part of the body to release into the Sun's cleansing frequency. The Sun is the source energy of all life in this region of the solar system. It is a plasma forge responsible for every human beings bio thermal-electromagnetic plasma energy that gives life to the physical. Send the toxicity back to the source. Positive outside frequencies will help this task meet its end.

Here's a link for a good audio frequency to begin with, just to nuke the high hell out of the parasites, before you go on the maintenance listening of the binaural music/sounds. The sound is pretty jarring, but extremely effective. You'll get used to it soon enough. Listen to it periodically through the day for two weeks. Hope this all helps.

Technically, unclogging the blood plasma for better electrolyte conductivity is a key to healthy immune systems. Carcinogens block good bio photons from the plasma, creating a "dark and cloudy" environment for parasites to fester like a fungus.

Here's another good audio track to help:

Ok, I did make a blanket statement. True. Not all doctors are strict alumni.

But can we agree on that most western institutions of medicine ranging from its Universities, Hospital, Research facilities, and collaborative agencies are fed and clothed by Big Pharma who's in the business of perpetual vampirism? If not, we can debate this some other time.
