My name is Melody, and I just found out by accident that I have a Tarlov cyst. I have been struggling to find out what was wrong with me for 18 months. I had surgery for a ruptured disc, and it seemed to go well, but after a month back at work, I again had severe pains, and have slowly declined since then. Now I am fighting to get this taken care of. I am afraid I am running out of fight.
