Suffered a subarchonoid bleed in March 2011. After numerous scans etc went to see neurologist private and had a 3T scan in Cheltenam. Results showed blood had entered spinal canal and clotted causing cord compression. From day one i have suffered lower back pain, pain in either side and what can only be described as constant stomach pain. Feels like I have a wide belt on that is over tight. Diagnosis was arachnoiditis and I have been on Gabapenin for a few months but it only takes the edge off the pain. I am still catheterised due to neuropathic bladder. Is anybody else with arachnoiditis suffering the same pain symptoms as I am. Started acupunture a few weeks ago with my physio but that doesnt seem to be doing any good. This miserable weather seems to be making the pain worse or am I just being paranoid. My walking is getting a little better but after a few yards the back pain is unbearable.
Comments would be welcome

my friend has had this condition since last march from a failed disectomy. You need to get to a pain specialist to get access to all the neuropathic pain meds....we saw one in London..tried a few things but now on lidnocaine patches, gabapentine 900mg and lots of other stuff. But it is the lidnociaine that is helping his pain.....

My pain symptoms are the same as you, i'm not yet at the stage of catheterisation though. I also suffer terribly due to change in weather to colder temperatures. I would not have believed it possible until i experienced it myself how much the change in weather can affect you.

Have you also tried anti inflammatories and muscle relaxants?
