cervical spine nerve root pain

Started by Linda497 on 08/27/2010 5:08pm

I had a nerve root injection into C-2 with Lidocain when I was in excrutiating pain. The Lidocain infusion caused even more excrutiating pain as the medicine infused and then the pain was 100% gone for awhile until the Lido. wore off and pain waas there again. Only surgery recommended is a "ganglionectomy" of which there is little info.and of mixed results. Any one else with similar condition and any help to offer? Thanks.

Sounds like you have a ganglion cyst in your cervical spine. I had one removed from my wrist, but not the spine. Where are you located???? You need to find a neurosurgon for this, and one that specifically does surgery on the cervical spine and brain. They told me my cyst came from an injury of some sort. They can get ungodly big and painful as you know.

I appreciate you comment and aid to assist.

I will google ganglion cyst in C-spine but I don't believe that is probably what my problem is but rather the name of the surgery-- a " C-2 ganglionectomy".

I live in Arlington, VA and have been to ssoooooo many doctors in 4 states over 18 years in my search!
