What happened???
I thought physical thearphy was going to go well. Yesterday was day two, not much to do. After that I came home ate n rested. I took my daughter to an app 30 min top. I have two girls so shopping is a lot easier with them. Before I could even get checked out I had 2 seizure, a friend got me out the store. Then this morning two more. I had to miss my app. How can thearphy help when all this is going on???? Ugh!!!

Sorry so early! This insomnia is driving me crazy!!!  First they put me on heating pads n a massager then she came in and massaged my neck. I thought I was gonna hit her it hurt so bad. Day two no massager just heating pads n massage  by hands not as bad, then paddling with my arms backwards for 4 min, then pulling a string that pulls the opposite arm over ur head. After that I took a pain pill n muscle relaxer n went to sleep!!

I am also at day 2 of pt. U r doin things u shouldn't do. Not yet anyways.
I lay down and do tiny head, neck, arm and leg exercises. Then I get up and do arm hand ones. I get a lil back massage but they do not touch my neck at all. U need a new pt sweetie

Call around to pt places and ask if they know chiari? If they say yes, ask them to explain it to u before u explain it to them. That will let u know if they truely understand it. If u need a referral get one after u fund a good pt.
Tell the pt u have now that they r doin the wrong things and its hurting u. Don't go back.

No way, call your dr and fill him/her in on what's going on tho. Let them know it makes u feel worse and what's goin on. I had bad experience with pt last year after my first surgery. I just told them it was makin me worse and quit going. Let me know if u find another pt, good luck and glad to help ;)
