What is Arachnoditis?“

Arachnoiditis is a pain disorder caused by the inflammation of the arachnoid, one of the membranes that surround and protect the nerves of the spinal cord. It is characterized by severe stinging, “burning pain“, and neurological problems.

This ailment first showed up on the spines of Egyptian mummies. It evolved in those mummies who had injuries to their spine. Most common treatment methods include non-prescription medications used to reduce swelling and prescription medications. Medications known to help spasms or seizures may help in managing this condition also.

Arachnoiditis has no consistent pattern of symptoms, but in many people, it affects the nerves connecting to the lower back and legs. The most common symptom is a pain; but, arachnoiditis can also cause:

  • Tingling, numbness, or weakness in the legs
  • Sensations that may feel like insects crawling on the skin or water trickling down the leg
  • Severe shooting pain that can be similar to an electric shock sensation
  • Muscle cramps, spasms, and uncontrollable twitching
  • Bladder, bowel and/or sexual dysfunction
