Has anyone here experienced lightheadedness to the extent of where it’s was almost constant? I’m also noticing my swallowing getting worse to the point of almost choking on liquids.. What worries me is my symptoms have gotten so bad in just a couple of months it makes me scared that it is serious...
Hi...in this heat , weather can be playing a part in how you feel, Are you well hydrated?
Do you have a syrinx?(sorry I can't remember)
Well I may be back to square one again.. I went to a different er awhile ago and they did a ct scan and the the doctor told the radiologist to look for chiari and it was normal. So idk what do now :(
I see my PCP tomorrow and theirs so much I wanna mention to him but I don't wanna overwhelm him. Like the er seeing the chiari on a ct scan and everything. Should I tell him I need mri's of my head and full spine? I see a neurologist next week but I just wish my PCP could get these tests out of the way.
So I went to the doctor today and he pretty much said he’s gonna let the neurologist do everything like he doesn’t want any part in it.. I’m so short of breath today and it’s just getting worse every single day :(. So this is either a syrinix or brain stem compression causing the shortness of breath don’t you think?
I’m at the hospital again I’m having heart palpitations elevated heart rate and shortness of breath I’m so worried... I’ve been working in the heat all day today and maybe that’s a contributing factor.. All day today every time I bend over I feel faint and short of breath :(.
Just left the hospital a bit ago they did an ekg and blood work and sent me on my way my heart still hasn’t come below the 100 mark...
Hi, i'm 21 and I got decompression surgey 13 months ago and still experience shortness of breath, dizziness, and feeling disassociated all the time. i totally understand how unnerving it is but it's comforting to hear other people feel this as well. i don't have another MRI or appointment scheduled until october, so please let me know if you find out any more info on this from your doctor. good luck, praying for all of you.
Well I saw the neuro yesterday and I believe I’m getting a CINE mri because she said she needed to speak with a radiologist about what type of mri I need and I just expect that to be it. Honestly from looking at my last mri it doesn’t appear to be any obstruction with my tonsils blocking spinal fluid I think most of my symptoms are from brain stem compression abs the fact it’s kinked.
For the past few days I’ve noticed a burning sensation acros my whole back it feels like it’s on fire or something. Is this a chiari thing or could that be a syrinix?
Ok today I’m really concerned I’m feeling real out of it and confused it’s hard to describe but I find it really difficult to think clearly. The past couple of days I’ve been feeling off like something different is up idk. Could I have hydrochepalus causing these symptoms? Or could this just be chiari causing the confusion and stuff?
