Hello. Thank you for requesting to be my friend on this site. I have suffered much I am most certainly sure you can understand.
I was originally diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in 1999. It took 10 years to get the correct diagnosis of Chiari.
After my Chiari surgery, I had a full hopes and high anticipations of complete recovery to full health, energy, and vigor of life.
After 3 weeks, I went back to work, proud and grateful to have found what I believed to have been the cure.
But oh the horror in exactly 5 weeks after the surgery and 2 weeks of work, I was back in bed full time and the fibromyalgia symptoms had returned.
My journey through sorting out what is Chiari and what is fibromyalgia is difficult.
