Just wondering if anyone has been told the same thing by their doctor: I have extreme pain in my sacrum when I sit and a shooting sharp pain in my sacrum when I stand up. Of course all my doctors said they can't find anything wrong, however, my pain doctor said she feels it has something to do with the Tralov Cyst in that area. I researched these cysts and found out that many people who have Chiari also have tarlov cysts. I also found out that they in fact cause a lot of pain. They are CSF filled cysts that are attached to the spine by nerve endings. These cysts are dismissed by Neurologists and Neurosurgeons the same as they dismiss chiari.
I found one of the only doctor who does surgery on the cysts because he understands the disease. He said normally when the pain is severe in the sacrum, then the cysts are could be eroding the sacrum bone and causing perminent nerve damage.
His name is Dr. Feigenbaum and he's in Dallas. If anyone is experiencing this kind of pain, try looking at his website and research this disease. If you male him you MRI's, he will do a free phone consultation but it takes 5 to 6 months.
Hope everyone found some good in their day today!
