Hi everyone. I have just been diagnosed with chiari and still in shock.What bothers me the most is a have a son that just turned one and most days I just cant take care of him. I have really bad days where I am dizzy all the time and feel like I am living in a differant world. I also have numbness in my arms, feet, and lips. Some lower back pain, neck pain, and muscle burning between my shoulders. Its very depressing. I came on her to find people like me that can relate because I feel nobody understands. I live near pittsburgh and I have an appointment aug 30th with doctor friedlander. I am really scared.:(

  Hi so u do not have ur surgery scheduled yet?

I am in PA but on the other side.

Do u have a CSF obstruction, or a syrinx or ne other related Chiari condition?
This can be a very scary journey and I want u to know u r not alone, there r plenty of us that know just how u feel, some with small children and babies and some of us our children r grown, but have gone thru it, so we r here for u : )

U will want ur sister to do neck exercises for those that have had this surgery....it will help the muscles from getting tight which will also cause pain....I have a chart with diff exercises posted on it,. ask me about it....

And do post a new thread so u can get more replies and suggestions for ur sister, I use this thread to post prayer threads for those with up coming surgeries. :  )
