I need advice. have tarlov cysts a little over 1.5 inches wide and DDD. I stay in pain night and day. Pain pills only make my pain less severe, but by no means take it away. I have been even trying a chiropractor but it seems like i am in worse pain in my lower back. Could he be harming the cysts? The chiropractor has helped my neck, but the area where the cysts are is excruciating. anyone have these cysts. My ns says they only affect about nine percent of the population.
