I've read your question about the pain. I was diagnosed with Chiari I with syringomyelia 18 yrs ago and I must say, the pain doesn't seem to go away. I usually prefer ibuprofen, for the painful muscular pain, I noticed muscle relaxants like robaxacet have helped me. But most of all, hot packs or heating pads have helped me feel better (just be careful of the numb parts since our condition usually entails no heat or cold sensations). And massages, too. And the weather changes have a big effect, as well. So all I do is be prepared with the pain meds when there is a forecast. Good luck and Hope you feel better soon!
I read ur post on the welcome thread about rainy days. I do not have sm but I do have cm. And rainy cold days are my worst. I can usually predict a storm about 12-24 hours in advance and have never been wrong yet. Lol. Mybfriends have actually called me before the went to an amusement park to see if it would be good. I have deduced this to the low pressure fronts that always seem to accompany the bad weather. And low atmospheric pressure is known to cause increase in csf so it makes sence more csf and a blockage means more pressure. Sorry u are suffering and hope u feel better soon
