I just had an MRI of my brain done about a month ago, and the report stated that they found 6mm of cerebellar tonsillar ectopia. I have no idea what this is, and have not been able to find anything about it online. I had the MRI because I have been having persistent nerve problems and occasional headaches. I have had tons of other tests done, including a visit to Cleveland Clinic and everything else was normal. Could this be the cause of all the nerve problems I have been having? If anyone knows anything about this, please tell me everything you know in detail. Thank you!!
