Hello. I got a text from Mayo clinic about someone looking ro find out about arachnoiditis.
I was diagnosed with this horrible disease in 2012. Quite by accident. I have had back problems since the 80's. Back then no one knew exactly what to do to fix it. Found a wonderful doctor and had my L4-L-5 fused. Went ok for a few years. But the pain returned. Had SO many shots in my back. Doctors said there wasn't anything they could do. After finding a pain managment doctor and getting more epidurals had another MRI. THATS when they discovered it. So, since 2012 i have been on the Fentanyl patch every other day. Plus hydrocodone. My doctor also provided me with medical marijuana. I am still suffering. And tbere is NO CURE for arachnoiditis. Hope this may help some one. Peace be with you.
