« Thread started on: Jul 31st, 2007, 08:41am »

A year ago I started having back pain with terrible burning sensations buttocks. Dr had me go for MRI, then called to say MRI only showed minnimal amout of arthritis. Since then went to her many times for medicine for pain, and was sent to a Dr. who specilizes in stomach and bowels I guess, can't remember name, but puts a tube with camera up your you know what. Every thing was fine and he suggested that is was all in my head. Back to Dr again, much pain, burning in buttocks, and upper legs get sesation of being ice cold or wet, with pain in one leg, and tingling. She sent my to neuoligst, who looked at my file, and said, this is it, this is it, you have a .... small root sheath cyst at eh s2 level. Gave me pills and told me to ealy for surgery, usually they go away on their own. Come back in four months for follow up. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

Dones anyone here have ...SMALL NERVE SHEATH CYST at the S2 level, if so, please give me so direction as to what you have done, thank you.

It seems as though you might have a Tarlov cyst...A Tarlov cyst is often referred to as a nerve sheath cyst and are often found at S1 and S2...You might want to see a NSS about the cyst, but in truth they often do not do surgery on them either...You would often have to go to Hopkins to see Dr. Long or Georgetown to see Henderson.
