  Sorry, u must have given everyone and urself a fright.

These are not uncommon symptoms for chiari...not sure what the ER can do but be sure u r not in  medical distress and that it is just a short lived symptom.

  Hopefully u can hang tight till the 1st....

  From my drop attack until I got to a NS that knew Chiari was almost a yr later....so I know how u feel....try to relax.

  and do let us know what the Drs at the ER say.

I know how you feel. I was at the ER yesterday (not for my Chiari). The doctor was very nice and the nurse too.

You are in my prayer, I belived they will do the best they can to help you.

  They admitted u...what did they say was wrong? They must have suspected something in particular.....

  Sending prayers all goes well.

Well your going the right place.  Hopefully you got your headache to subside a little.  I know through my tough road.  I went to ER they gave me a shot of some kind.  Came home and it helped getting some rest and helped the headache.  Just keep us updated.  I know it isn't alway's easy to get on line in the hospital.  Your in my chirian prayer's.

Well im getting mixed answers...still pretty confused. The main two answers are the chiari and a minor stroke. I have to use a cane for a bit and meet with their neurosurgeon. But I am definitely gonna get copies of everything to take to my neuro..still don't know why my oxygen keeps dropping..hopefully I can go home soon. Thanks for the prayers, this is a really trying time.
