It is not normal, but many chiarians do have this issue. Many of us have DDD, cervical stinosis and bulging disks.....some even have calcifications on the bones or nodules....not sure what they r called.
I get this all the time. Sometimes when it happens it will either trigger a headache or pressure in my head and even dizziness.....Not all the time but it does happen. Another thing I get too is (this may sound weird but its hard to explain) but it feels like my brain jumps inside my head or twitches its weird....
i have the same issue with my neck it happens all the time no matter what i do, it is rather annoying and sometimes i wish people could hear what i hear, feel what i feel maybe then they would understand and not think I am crazy!...LOL...
I also get the dizzyness from it too. I do have cervical stenosis.
Yes I get that, a headache at times, but usually if it's cause I turned my head to fast. I have no idea on my Chiari details just yet. They were fague with me last week, said I had it and they needed a CINE MRI. She said after that I needed to meet with a surgeon as she, the neurologist, could do nothing about it.
Reading your guys posts has been so helpful, learning that I am not crazy, LOL! I tried to explain my symptoms for so long and they kept telling me it was from having the brain surgery 3 years ago for something else.
