Arachnoiditis is a neurological condition that can cause severe back pain and radiates to the perineum, legs, arms, and feet. Arachnoiditis can also affect a person’s vision, sight, and mobility. This condition develops when the tissues surrounding the nerves, brain, and spinal cord are injured or damaged.

Arachnoiditis Causes & Symptoms
The arachnoid is one of the membranes surrounding and protecting the spinal cord’s nerves. When this membrane becomes irritated and inflamed, the condition is called arachnoiditis. The arachnoid membrane can become irritated by direct injury, dye chemicals used in some diagnostic therapies, bacterial or viral infections, compression of spinal nerves, or complications from some spinal procedures. This can include direct punctures of the spinal membrane from errors in spinal surgeries or procedures. Dr. Brett Warfield provides non-invasive treatments for this condition at TIPI Pain Management in Houston, conveniently accessed for our Baytown, Sugar Land, and Cypress patients.
Arachnoiditis is a progressive disease; therefore, symptoms can increase over time. Each person may be different; therefore, no two patients’ symptoms may be identical. During the early stages, some people may mistake this disease for a joint injury, muscle strain, or sprain. This is why we recommend seeing a pain management specialist in Houston that can provide you with accurate diagnoses. The most common symptoms of arachnoiditis include:
changes in vision
joint, muscle, or back pain
unusual sensations, such as burning or tingling.
ringing in the ears
changes in hearing
swelling of the meninges.
