Pain of Arachnoid Cyst

It doesn’t matter what you take, how long you sit, stand or lay down, you cannot escape the pain.

I can be relaxed, as much as I can, with distractions and all of the sudden I have excruciating sharp pains in both of my hands. It radiates from the top of my hands above my thumbs through my hands, I ball up my hands and grit my teeth in pain, trying not to show anyone that my pain has spiked from 4 to 10 in a split second, then before I can relax my hands the pain shoots down my legs to my feet, oh my God, what is this now the heels of my feet feel like I have been walking a mile on sharp rocks with no shoes on. About five minutes later the pain subsides and now I am back to pain in my neck and back, but wait we aren’t done yet….here comes the headache….it starts out on the top of my head, like a band around my head being squeezed tighter and tighter, then it radiates down the back of my head to my neck and sits there, I can’t tell you how long, it is just the worst pain, stabbing pressure. With the neck fusions from C4 to C7 it feels like the hardware is being tightened harder putting pressure on the front of my throat through to the back of my neck and head. Then my hands start to quiver and let out a shake before it finally relaxes. Now I am exhausted, I can’t think straight, I feel like I can’t take a deep breath, all I want is to go to sleep, I can’t hold my eyes open, when will it start over again, I hate the pain.
