Hi....I am in Lehigh County...pretty close.

It is possible to have seizures related to the chiari...it depends on the nerves affected by the herniation and CSF blockage.

The best place for u to go is TCI in NY.....I went to Philly nad Lehigh Valley Hosp.....the NS r not chiari specialists and that is what u need! Alot of us do need to travel to get the right dr.

There r orgs out there to help with travel....I've added links...to our health pages.If u read the welcome thread at the top of the forum....u will find the link. there is also a button on the top right hand of the screen.

The only dr in PA is out in Pittsburg....Dr Bejjani....5 hrs from here....the chiari insitute in NY is 2 hrs.

I hope u continue to post here....members r well informed and offer support!!

Welcome!
