I have Type 1 Arnold-Chiari. I had many symptoms, such as headache (more so when I sneezed, tilted head)
severe hand pain and other minor problems. I had surgery last year and was relieved of most of the promblems.
Question is..Do some people have to have 2 surgeries? the headaches have come back..and I'm on pills for chronic pain, which isn't helping. One doctor says I'm fine, while another says, maybe going back to put in a shunt.I know you can't help much not knowing my medical backround ,but any input is welcome.
