I suspect I have a thoracic cyst (benign) a bit to the left of my spine from about T-4 to T-7. This comes from being in back pain for about two months. PT failed. Unfortunately, I've been put in the "struggle to even get an MRI," despite paresthesia symptoms from the back of my head, my lip, to my chest (right behind nipple) to my abdomen, and to my leg and foot. My doctor is firmly in the, "You're young and in great shape, so nothing can be going on," camp. The problem has been the nerve irritation. It's not "constant" as in all day, but happens randomly throughout the day.
I'm finally seeing the doctor next Wednesday about ordering the MRI.
For those of you who have had a cyst identified, what was your surgery recommendation? If you went through a removal, how long was the recovery? Was it successful?
