So I've had chronic back/ Leg pain, stiffness, and weakness for the last 4 years. I am now 35 years of age. I still haven't gotten a clear answer form doctors what the cause could be. My last two lumbar MRI's showed a normal spine, except that I had multiple tarlov cysts on my nerve root. I looked this up online and my symptoms match what is being show for symptomatic tarlov cysts, I have alot of pain sitting, standing, walking, and bending. My pain radiates from my lower back, buttocks, down legs to feet. My legs constantly burn and are very weak. Lying down is the only things that relieved the symptoms. But when I brought this up to the neurologist, he didn't think the cysts would cause that pain. But there is no other explanation, so I am feeling confused. Does anyone else have these and are your symptoms similar? Did your doctor agree that pain is from the cysts? Would love to hear other's experience with this, as I feel in the dark. Thanks ahead of time!
