Hi I am new as you can tell. I have lower back disc issues as well as cervical. Today I picked up radiologist report and it says I have a nerve root sleeve cyst or synovial cyst on c-6-c-7. I see the doc on Monday. But cannot wait to find out what it is and what is tx if any. I am in so much pain but have had it for 3 yrs and have so many silly answers. Fibro and Chronic Fatigue and collapsed discs. But the cyst I wonder if it could be the cause of any of my problems.
ALso just wanted to say hi to all you pain warriors. I know we live a differnt life due to the pain. At least on that front I know I am not alone.
If anyone has any idea at all it would be most welcom.

Thank you,

    I'm not familiar with your diagnosis but I'm going to suggest that you re post on New introductions or back and neck surgery forum. or both if you don't get any response soon. Under View Recent Posts your buried on the second page. Not good. Welcome to Spine Health.
    Good luck, Jim

  • hi deena,

    welcome to spine health. one of our moderators (paul) could probably share a bit about having a synovial cyst and point you towards a few threads where other members discuss theirs.

  • Hi Dina , I too am not familiar with that diagnosis but have issues in the same area of the neck and more. I'm guessing it means a cyst on the tissues around the nerve but that's just my guess! Anway, I would ask what are your symptoms- based on where it is it might be easy to compare notes about that area. I have fought it but I have fibro which is more of an all over floating pain. Where the nerve pain is has more of a pattern I think. Its hard figuring it out. I can totally relate.
  • sorry deena, i don't have experience with synovial cysts. but i just wanted to say welcome to spine-health.

    this article talks about synovial cysts in the lumbar spine. i'm not sure what the difference would be in teh c-spine, but here is a link to some information.

    Surviving chronic pain one day at a time, praying for a reprieve because living another 40 years like this doesn't sound too fun!
