So sorry to hear this but for sum reason it is hard to get someone to actually write up that you have Arachnoiditis. I have had it for a long time and just found out that a mylagram test with dye will show the Arachnoiditis and you can have your primary order it. It is a 20 minute test, I have a pain pump wich they put the dye in but my pain doctor was able to see everything.

Hi I was told in July of 2017 I have Arachnoiditis in 2015 I had back fusion it failed and now have 8 levels of fusion. I could not find out why I was having so much pain even after the bones fused, one doctor fused my Sacroiliac joint on my left side now I walk with a cane and at 50 I feel like 80 I am in stage 3 hith Adhesive and scarring it has taken away all the things in life I loved that and the pain has been the hardest part. I am married with 3 boys and it is effecting my mind I feel it is winning and I don't have much time so trying to enjoy what I can wish you the best Ralph.

I to have Arachnoiditis I went to Dr. Forest Tannant survival handbook for Arachnoiditis it list alot of things you need to do and follow. Dr. Forest Tannant also is on YouTube and tells you alot of information about it on there. I had a hard time getting good pain relief I now have a pain pump and it has helped but I'm in stage 3 with scarring and adhesion and it is really hard for me to do things. Read his handbook you need to find out how bad it is. Best of luck Ralph

I to have Arachnoiditis and I live in Florida searching for a specialist also. I have read up on a doctor Forest Tannant he has used a regimen to treat arachnoiditis I am using his recamendations and trying to see if my pain management doctor will follow his treatment plans. He said Arachnoiditis patient need to have control of the inflamation Toradol shots and other antiaflamitory meds we also need are hormones checked because we usually will have a low count and should be on hormones meds that help with the ones we are low in. Dr. Tannant also states we need to find Doctors that will recognize that we have Arachnoiditis this will be the hard part. If anyone knows of any Doctors in Florida please let me know thanks.
