I am wondering if you treat, or have treated patients with spinal arachnoiditis. I was diagnosed with this terrible disease in 2013. I have yet to find a provider that is familiar with this in Colorado. My primary care physician, whom I have only met a few times is baffled with my symptoms and is not familiar with this. I have had to ask for prednisone a couple of times to try to calm down the nerves, she is hesitant in doing this, and I am at a point that I need to get help before its too late.
I look forward to hearing from you in hopes of getting my life back.
Since I am new to this forum, I just saw some of your comments that you are indeed familiar with this. I will make an appointment for a consultation with you and bring my MRI (s) and more records that I have.

I do treat this condition but there is no cure. Treatment is supportive for flair-ups as they occur. Some patients have minimal symptoms but there are patients with severe symptoms. Treatment includes medications, spinal cord and nerve stimulators and occasional injections for flair-ups as they occur.
