I am new to spine health. I was just recently informed that I have arachnoiditis. I have had multiple low back surgeries. I am being told that this is the same as failed back surgery syndrome and also that this has nothing to do with why I am still in so much pain. I have a spinal cord stimulator implanted but it does nothing for my pain levels. And although this is a chronic condition it does not cause any long term affects or pain. It is just nerve fibers that are bundled together. I have had limited mobility and pain in my spine for the past 2 years. I was just inquiring if anyone else has heard of this or may have the condition. I am also looking to maybe find a physican in the cleveland pittsburgh area who can possibly help me manage my unending pain.. Thank You!!!
