Hi, I am a fellow chiarian and live in Loveland glad to have someone close! I am 5 mo post op from decompression and getting the horrible ha's again. I am curious if the occipital block has helped you cuz I can't take pain anymore. Am seeing Dr Oro soon as soon as I get new MRIs thanks for your input not sure where to go from here.
I stumbled across your question about MMJ and Chiari as I am in the same boat as you. For myself, it has worked better than any medication ever prescribed.
I have the same issue with menstruation twice a month, too. I am starting to wonder if added pressure in our skulls and brains are making the pituitary glands go nutty or something, causing us to menstruate more often.
I'd like to chat sometime if you would. I am 34 years old and live in NJ.
I hope you are feeling well.
