Arachnoid Cyst

I've been searching for others with an arachnoid cyst. Just wondering what type of symptoms they're causing. I'm trying to figure out if my symptoms are due to MS or the arachnoid cyst I've been diagnosed with.

" I have an autoimmune disorder called dermatomyositis, I was having symptoms that were not consistent with DM and was being evaluated for MS. It turned out I do not have MS but I do have an epidermoid cyst. the size of a dime. They are not doing surgery at this time but are monitoring the size as it may be growing. I also happened to be tapering off of prednisone and low and behold the symptoms I thought were from MS and then the tumor, which were neurological in nature, numbness, tremors on one side, balance and vertigo issues, have almost disappeared since I got off of prednisone. So, I do still have some balance and dizziness issues which could be the cyst because it is in a ventricle and it effects cerebrospinal fluid flow. There is a lot of information on cysts on the internet, look at pubmed.
Good Luck,
Maruska "
