Concerning symptoms.: Hi amorebella, perhaps you know my daughter arielle who went to university of buffalo med school, and is now a neurology resident at nyu. I'll ask her if she wants to get on the panel, but time.... Anyway, i've had a patient similar to what you have who had the arachnoid cyst removed neurosurgically, and is doing fine. Suggest a neurology/neurosurgical second opinion, presuming u had first one.

Neuro consult: Either or both, a neurologist or nuerosurgeon should be consulted. I would recommend going to a facility/institiution that is known for diagnosing and treating this, example johns hopkins or mayo clinic-you get the picture. Its possible you might not need surgery.
