It was operated on, and so far, hasn't regrown. Although we were sure it had, because the symptoms returned early last year. But an MRI didn't reveal any new growth.
But now it seems I have Occipital Neuralgia, originating from the cyst operation, which damaged the Occipital nerves!
Just my luck...
have been having migraines for past few yrs - getting worse and more frequent and lasting longer. Also have associated neurological features - numbness, tingling, and speech is difficult and a bit slurred.
Have over past month had days when i sleep abnormal amounts!
I had a scan MRI - which showed a "possible intradiploic arachnoid cyst".
Am waiting for a neurosurgery appointment now .
was very shocked at the results appointment and asked very little.
Please tell me what to expect?
would rather know what's likely and be pleasantly surprised??
