I am guessing by now that you have learned a lot more about CM and syringomyelia. You were a little harsh on the lady who mentioned a possible CM. Chiari malformations and syringomyelia often go hand in hand... I suffer from both. Not everyone does. I am glad to hear that you were finally able to be properly diagnosed. It takes most of us a really long time to get that... over 18 years for me and I'm only 34.
Just a quick note to say hi! I noticed u r posting in the neuro forum about chiari....we do have a Chiari forum and I invite u to join as we do have many members that can share info and support.
