I was diagnosed with multiple tarlov cysts about 2001, the largest one being 3/4 inch in diameter, (which to me seems quite big), though the consultant I sure didn't seem to think so. I was also diagnosed with osteoarthritis of the spine, including my neck about the same time. Since then have suffered severe pain in my spine when going to the toilet, which is steadily getting worse. I have always considered this to be the cysts causing this problem, but all the consultants I have seen do not agree. At no time has it been suggested that anything was done about these cysts. I have now developed bladder problems, the symtpoms of which all relate to problems caused by tarlov cysts as outlined in the information I downloaded from the internet. I now have pains in my legs, another symptom. I am waiting to be referred to a neurological surgeon, but would like to know if there is anyone who has experienced the same symptoms as I have, and if it is has been proved that they do related to tarlov cysts, and what if anything has been done about them.
