Daffney Shares New Medical Update - Dealing With A 'Perineural Root Sleeve Cyst' Between C7 & T1 Vertebrae

Former WCW and TNA Superstar Daffney recently took to social media to share an update on her health with her fans and peers. Daffney, who once briefly played a spoof of Sarah Palin on TNA television, discussed feeling Immense pain in her shoulder and also periods of numbness in her left hand. 

In an update, Daffney once again took to her Instagram to inform her fans and peers of her medical status. Daffney reveals that she went to see an orthopedic doctor, who recommended her to a neurologist ASAP, "I went to one of the top orthopedic Dr.s at St. Joseph's Hospital on 8/27. After speaking with his PA, I waited very briefly and Dr. Jeffords came in with his cart and a monitor on it. He showed me a few images with a bright white spot next to my spine - which looked like the third picture, but it's between my C7 and T1. He sat down and said that he wouldn't waste any of my time. He had never seen anything like it and said I needed to see a neurologist asap. He put this rare diagnosis on the referral so they would get me in quicker. A perineural root sleeve cyst is found in the lower back - again like in picture #3 - but because it was up between my C7 & T1 it was unheard of."

Unfortunately for Daffney as she waits for another appointment on September 11, she is still suffering a great amount of pain, “ I'm in constant pain and have muscle spasms in my left shoulder, shoulder blade and bicep. My left thumb is still numb. I get sharp pains in my wrist and fingers. My neck is stiff just like it was after my surgery 2 1/2 years ago. I've been just trying to stay positive and push through until my appointment so I can find out what is going on.” However, the Scream Queen does go on to say that she’s enjoying a new job which is centered around yoga. “I love my new job @yogaworks_atlanta and I've been able to work, but sometimes it kills and then sometimes I have more feeling and there's less pain and it's not too terribly bad.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Daffanatics! First, let me again say thank you for the love and kind thoughts ---- I wanted to update y'all as best I can on my physical health. For those interested on an update of both my physical and mental health - I'll be doing a live stream as soon as I can because I definitely need to. I went to one of the top orthopedic Dr.s at St. Joseph's Hospital on 8/27. After speaking with his PA, I waited very briefly and Dr. Jeffords came in with his cart and a monitor on it. He showed me a few images with a bright white spot next to my spine - which looked like the third picture, but it's between my C7 and T1. He sat down and said that he wouldn't waste any of my time. He had never seen anything like it and said I needed to see a neurologist asap. He put this rare diagnosis on the referral so they would get me in quicker. A perineural root sleeve cyst is found in the lower back - again like in picture #3 - but because it was up between my C7 & T1 it was unheard of. Plus, if you look it up (which believe me I've read a ton now) the patient usually only feels symptoms in the legs and that's only 1% of the time. And mine is my left arm, shoulder, hand etc. So we are all perplexed. The soonest I could get an appointment was 9/11 @ 7:30am but I'm gonna be there at 7 because this really blows. I'm in constant pain and have muscle spasms in my left shoulder, shoulder blade and bicep. My left thumb is still numb. I get sharp pains in my wrist and fingers. My neck is stiff just like it was after my surgery 2 1/2 years ago. I've been just trying to stay positive and push through until my appointment so I can find out what is going on. I love my new job @yogaworks_atlanta and I've been able to work, but sometimes it kills and then sometimes I have more feeling and there's less pain and it's not too terribly bad. It's weird. So I hope that explains my silence. Just been playing the waiting game. Literally counting down the days. Knowledge is power -- I hope it's something that can be fixed easily so I can start taking some yoga classes on my days off and build back strength ----
