my daughter went to a neurologist and was told that her madula is going down her spinal cord and that he will see her in 6 months and then she may need surgery. Does that sound like Chiari and would that make her disabled. What procedure would be recomended for this
my daughter goes to the same neurologist that i go to and he is an excellant surgeon. the infomation i was going off of was what she told me. i had an appointment wth him the next day and told him how much he had scared her.. he sat me down showed me her mri and explained it to me. the cerbellum is at 4mil down the spinal cord and that he was not concerned it would go further..she feel from her horse about 6 months ago while she was laughing and began to have a severe headache and lost her balance this has happened during a water fight with the family. any tme that she laughs she gets weak in her knees and falls. she wakes with headaches that do not go away with head movement and she is concerned now of a brain tumor. she has returned to her regular doctor and they will do a brain scan and will go for a new mri and different neurologist.
Hi...I was happy to see that ur DD is going to see a diff NL and is going for a new MRI....there could be other issues going on causing an obstruction...the tonsils r not the only way for CSF to be blocked...a retroflexed odontoid can do as much if not more ....
