Arachnoiditis is a pain brought by the swelling of the arachnoid, and it is one of the membranes that encompasses and secures the nerves of the spinal cord. It is described by neurological issues, serious stinging, and burning pain.
Inflammation of the arachnoid can prompt scar tissue formation and can make the spinal fibers clump and break down. The arachnoid can become inflamed due to a disturbance from any of these:
- Direct injury to the spine
- The constant pressure of spinal nerves
- Contamination from microorganisms or infections
- Complications from a spinal medical procedure or other invasive spinal methods
