I am a single mom of the worlds greatest 9 year old boy whom I love with all my heart. I just found out last April that all this odd stuff that I have been dealing with my whole life is all because of Chiari malformation type 1.. I felt so validated when I found out tha
[More]t all this was because of Chiari when I would pass out or my face would go numb or I would just drop stuff for NO reason when my head hurt so bad for months now I know why, I ran home and called my dad to let him know the Doctors were wrong I wasnt on some kid drugs that did this I really do have something wrong, I know to the world that sounds odd but for years Dr would tell my parents nothing is wrong all the test came back ok as much as I dont want Chiari I'm just so happy I know whats wrong....
Just a quick note to say hi! I was just diagnosed and ran across your post. I live in Powder Springs and was wondering how you were feeling. Did you find a Dr. and did you have the surgery. Just said a prayer for you! Thanks and hope and pray you are having a good day.
