"Hi Selma, hope you're well!
I'm from Canada. I'm pretty sure you've mentioned, in the past, that Canadians can call or email doctors in New York, and get professional opinions via email. Is this possible?"
"Hi again Selma,
Well, cervical spine MRI came back clear, thank goodness!!! I could have sworn there was something in there!
Over Christmas, I did have a virus in my neck as I experienced sharp pain in my neck. Also had mild pains ..."
Thanks they actually unfused my c1 during the decompression surgery and I worked with a chiropracter before surgery that worked closely with Dr Oro so when I feel healed up enough I may have her help my neck I think I have cranial pressure so I don't think the CSF is good which I hope is the case since that would be an answer that could be fixed so it will all be good-one day at a time-best of luck to you!
Congrats on not having to have surgery-I am not an expert but would say all the other symptoms you have are definetly chiari related. I wouldn't do surgery until you can't go anymore because it is so huge and now that I am getting headaches again am hoping it was worth it. Your symptoms may just plateau and not get worse. I also have degenerative joints in neck that is in part to the chiari my c1 was fused to my skull so my neck is curved wrong! I learn something new everyday about it am going to a new NL on Tues and just pray he listens if not move on to another- Hope that helped and best of luck!
