I have recently been diagnosed with this and just from the few sites on it, that I have read...it is called a disease and I am in the second stage of 3 stages.I want to learn more and I want to be fixed. It said surgery may help for a bit, but ultimately could make it worse by putting more scar tissue around the bunched up nerves making them stick together (adhesive arachnoiditis)(3rd stage)
Is their anyone who has this? Can someone please tell me, is their a way to cut down on the pain? There is never a minute of the day or night, that I do not hurt, nor is there a minute of the day that I am ever comfortable. I have lots of trouble sleeping because it hurts even worse when laying down.
If anyone has any kind of information on this, please let me know and if you know a neurosurgeon that is an expert with this particular condition, please tell me his/her name...I am in the Birmingham, Alabama (USA) area...
