Arachnoiditis is a painful condition that is caused by the inflammation of the arachnoid, a membrane that protects the nerves of the spinal cord. The condition may also cause tingling in the legs, shooting pain, and muscle cramps. Arachnoiditis can be caused by spinal cord injury, an infection, compression of the spinal nerves, and exposure to certain chemicals. Arachnoiditis is not curable. It is treated with medications, physiotherapy, exercise, and psychotherapy. Read more: Arachnoiditis Article
