I am 17 years old and a Senior in high school. I was diagnosed with Chiari Malformation type 1 in December 2012. My Chiari was found after I suffered a concussion from a basketball injury. The doctors say that my Chiari was accidentally found in an MRI but after the con
[More]cussion I began to have all of the symptoms of a Chiari Malformation. I'm still experiencing terrible headaches and have not played basketball since I received my concussion. I have already seen two neurosurgeons that have blamed all of my headaches on the concussion but I'm also experiencing neck and back pain, pain in my right arm, and ringing in my ears. I have joined this site because I have found it helpful and when I receive treatment I want to help other people with the same problems I had when I was first diagnosed.
