Arachnoiditis Lawsuits

Arachnoiditis is a chronic incurable spinal condition which causes severe pain and various other problems. It gets its name from the description of what it is: inflammation of the arachnoid layer of the meninges, which are protective layers around the spinal cord and brain.

Arachnoiditis is a sort of chronic meningitis of the middle layer. The name stems from the scientific term for spider because the layer resembles a spider's web in appearance. This web becomes tangled when it is chronically inflamed, with Scar tissue binding the nerve roots together, causing pain and numbness/tingling in the parts of the body supplied by these roots.

A chronic condition has the potential to turn your life upside down and put you in a difficult position with regard to living your life they way you want to. If you feel as though your Arachnoiditis is the result of medical malpractice, or stems from unnatural means, then you may be eligible to receive compensation for this negligence in the form of damages through a lawsuit.


Being knowledgeable on the disease itself while having capable legal counsel by your side to guide your decision making on this subject can put you in a favorable position to sue for damages and be compensated for your pain and suffering.

Arachnoiditis Causes

The causes of this debilitating condition are most commonly iatrogenic, which means due to medical intervention.

A leading expert has suggested that Arachnoiditis accounts for about 11% of what is termed "Failed Back Surgery Syndrome," which is persistent back or leg pain following spinal surgery. Furthermore, it is common for doctors to misdiagnose this diseases as well (either accidentally or intentionally). Sometimes a doctor may conclude that your affliction is Arachnoiditis, when it is in fact a disease called Cauda Equina. No matter what the case though, you may be able to receive compensation either way.

Surgery is by no means the only cause of Arachnoiditis. In fact, the most common causes nowadays include:

• Epidural steroid injections, (which ironically are used to treat Failed Back Surgery Syndrome. The preservatives in these preparations are toxic to nerves).
• Myelograms - procedure where dye is injected into the spinal fluid to help image any compromise to the spinal cord. The dye itself, specifically Myodil, has been known to cause Arachnoiditis.
• Water-soluble dyes such as Conray and Dimer-X. Even the newer dyes such as Omnipaque can cause problems.
• Epidural anesthetics (such as those used in childbirth).
• Meningitis.
• Subarachnoid hemorrhage (a type of stroke).

Arachnoiditis Symptoms

Arachnoiditis causes a wide variety of symptoms. The pain is the predominant feature. It is persistent, always there. Other possible symptoms include:

• intense burning,
• intermittent electric shock sensations,
• muscle spasms
• burning feet or a feeling of walking on broken glass.
• problems with bladder control,
• sexual dysfunction,
• loss of bowel control,
• excessive sweating, and/or
• intolerance of heat.

Having a strong understanding of the symptoms and causes of this rare and debilitating disease will allow you to approach a legal situation in the most effective manner possible. A solid comprehension coupled with the help of a qualified Florida medical malpractice lawyer will ensure that you are doing everything you can to regain what has been lost.

  11. Injured and have been suffering 7 years with adhesive arachnoiditis and was injured by another doctor as well who left hardware in my back and did unnecessary surgery destroying my upper back but he can't be touched either . If new healthcare bill goes through goes through ironically won't be covered because of these guys mistakes... how ironic. These surgeons lack basic ethics and can't even apologize for ruining someone's life.

  12. I'm looking for someone to represent me against a my pain doctor who was arrested and convicted of overprescribing. Well actually he was arrested for exchanging sexual favors for opiates but pled to a lessor charge. I was recently diagnosed with Arachnoiditis and have had 3 pain pump implants from him, 1 granuloma, and I have the highest level of Fentanyl at mh new doctors pain clinic in Portland (I moved from San Diego) out of 500 patients. My doctor in San Diego had me at over 4,000 mcg a day with a Medtronic syncro med II, I've reduced it to 2,740 and they want me to go down to 500. I'm miserable and life sucks. I want to sue my doctor for this arachnoidits. I told him I thought I had this is 2012 when I started researching symptoms and discovered they matched mine exactly. He went to do a mylogram on me by injecting some contrast in the sideport of my pain pump and I believe I had some kind of a cyst that was filled with Fentanyl. It burst and I started overdosing. He stuck me in the waiting room and they called my caretaker and told him I was ready to go. He showed up and I was going in and out of consciousness, not breathing a couple of times, they called him back and my doctor told him to watch me and went into his operating room in his surgical center to do a procedure. I vaguely remember coming to and seeing my caretaker looking very concerned and blackness taking back over. I came to being rushed to the ER. I guess an ambulance couldn't make it for an hour so my doctor and my caretaker drove me there. I should have sued him them but I actually considered him a friend. That wasn't the first time he screwed up. The other time he changed my pump med from Morphine to Fentanyl and instead of setting it at 3000 mcg he set it at .3 mcg and I went into withdrawls and almost died. I lost 40 lbs and it took 2 months to bring my pump back up to where I was comfortable. I threw up for a couple of weeks and couldn't eat solid food for a month. I lost my crown (tooth). It was a nightmare. Anyway, I just found in my medical papers that he did find signs of arachnoiditis when he did the fluoroscopy and almost killed me. He never said a word to me about that. He only said something about a cyst but I was so ill I really don't recall for sure the deal on that but I do know he found the arachnoiditis and last month I had a MRI here in Oregon that confirms clumping of my nerve roots and blood vessels. I want to sue him. Thank you

  13. OH, and did I say he has the highest death rate of any doctor in the United States? Or at least I should say he did. He is in jail serving his sentence and has lost his license to practice. This occurred this year
