Prognosis of Arachnoiditis


About prognosis: The 'prognosis' of Arachnoiditis usually refers to the likely outcome of Arachnoiditis. The prognosis of Arachnoiditis may include the duration of Arachnoiditis, chances of complications of Arachnoiditis, probable outcomes, prospects for recovery, recovery period for Arachnoiditis, survival rates, death rates, and other outcome possibilities in the overall prognosis of Arachnoiditis. Naturally, such forecast issues are by their nature unpredictable.

Prognosis for Arachnoiditis: There is no cure for arachnoiditis. For the majority of patients, arachnoiditis is a disabling disease causing intractable pain and neurological deficits. As the disease progresses, some symptoms may increase and become permanent. Few people with this disorder are able to continue working. In some cases, progressive paraplegia may occur. 1
