Hello everyone. I am sorry to hear that you are all in such pain, but am also grateful to find this site. I had no spine pain until I gave birth to my daughter 2 years ago. I had an epidural and to this day can feel the spot where they put it in. Something happened to me that day and I haven't been the same since. I won't go into all the details, but I would like to list a few of the things that I am experiencing of late and ask if this sounds like arachnoiditis to you all. I have been searching for answers for two years. My spine burns and throbs. I have numbness and pain in my right leg from the thigh to my toes. The tops of my feet burn. I run intermittent low grade fevers for no apparent reason. I have developed an area on my back that is very sensitive to touch and at times itches with an itch that cannot be satisfied. My husband calls it "the spot." I get tingling/buzzing sensations at various places. My neck seems to be achy alot. My lower legs swell off and on. Sometimes I have trouble swallowing (maybe this is something else). Flulike with vertigo at times. Also, a couple months ago I experienced a very brief episode of what I now know is called pleurisy (maybe not associated with this, I don't know). Also, now my shoulder joints have started to feel like this same burning pain. Sometimes the burning goes like this: it will burn for a few days/week, then burn and itch, then hurt/burn, then lighten up. Does this sound like arachnoiditis or anything fimiliar to anyone? Thanks for your time. Any comments/responses will be greatly appreciated.
