I am still waiting to see the neurologist. This is a list of all my current symptoms, and ones I think are related to the cyst, feel free to email me if you are suffering from the same things, and have an arachnoid cyst:
Forgetfulness...loosing things, no short term memory.....I have to write it down, then I loose it, then I forgot I wrote it. Then find it weeks later and wonder....Why did I write that down. Its great LOL
Dizziness, physical exercision like walking up 5 steps gives me a headrush.
Vertigo, though only when I am laying down, dont know if thats truly vertigo.
*Kidney stones (5 at once, and kidneys full of 'sand') no prior problems with kidneys, no family history, healthy diet and exercise.
Constant headache, dull, throbbing pain that worsens when I cough, bend down, put my head down, etc.
Severe headaches (in last 6 months, accompanied by vomiting) sensitivity to light sound and smell while having a *severe headache.
Visual disturbances, these happen a lot, at times it looks as if I JUST had my picture taken, then it fades, others come in the form of a long yellow white streak across something. Also if I see something bright white, there appears to be, spots on it, blue or yellow moving, blurry spots. At night trying to sleep it sometimes looks like there is a strobe light on, when my eyes are closed.
Inabality to focus, I took ADD medicine in high school, this helped, but I never got back on it, maybe I should
*Fatigue, or I feel weak, like I have NO ENERGY.
* Mornings when I wake, I am shaking for an hour or so
Though I feel fatigue, I cant sleep at night, perhaps due to my stressing over the cyst.
* symptoms that have appeared in the last 6 months
