Ventricles

Hi,

I am so relieved to come across your site.  My husband is an organic farmer who is an underweight, chemically sensitive, 54 yr old workaholic out of control who's cyst has returned and these symptoms are driving me nuts. 

I'm wondering if there is anyway anyone could answer a question for me regarding my husband's arachnoid cyst.  It is golf ball sized, located between the 3rd and 4th ventricles. 

He had a craniotomy in June of '98 which resulted in compilications (a rejection of the bovine grafting material as well as a staph infection.)

Hello, my name is Jan. I was first diagnosed in May of 2005. But here is the kicker…I wasn’t diagnosed. I went into the ER for a crippling migraine headache. They did a CT scan of my head and it revealed 3 cysts. Two of them were reported in the radiologists report, the third was not. The two that were reported to the ER doctor were totally dismissed and not reported to me. The attending doctor gave me IV hydromorphone, and sent me on my merry way. Through the year I started experiencing profound exhaustion, crippling headaches that in turn created nausea and vomiting, vertigo, loss of balance that caused me to fall down the stairs three times now, short term memory loss, loss of concentration, mood swings and irritability, reduced libido, burning sensation in the brain, visual disturbances, disorientation, staring seizures, general dyspraxia, dysphasia, and an ongoing list of other things uncharacteristic for a normal me.
