Arachnoiditis: Trying to find a specialist

Hi! I’ve been suffering for almost 5 years constant back pain with terrible muscle spasms. I can’t stay in one position for long because of the pain. This started right after I had my epidural for my last child. I had to have a c section for both my kids with no problem with the first. I’ve been seeing my general practitioner for 4 yrs and have had absolutely no relief and they can not tell me what’s causing this. I’m a physical therapist assistant so I’ve always been active and caution with my back but I can not even work. I have difficulty raising my kids because of the pain and barely sleep at night since it wakes me up in terrible pain. I’ve been searching for years to find out what’s wrong and came across arachnoiditis. I get occasional tingling and numbness in my legs but it’s inconsistent. Any suggestions?

  Dr. Forest Tennant in California is the one who I correspond with. Here is his link.

Thank you for thinking of me. I went to see Dr. Tennant Feb 5th and I have another appointment March 28th

How are you doing with pain from Arachnoititis and is it adhesive?
