Hi and welcome to the Chiari forum.
It is not how many appointments but what all u r tested for and do u need surgery now?
The reversed cervical lordosis is the curiture of ur neck...some have a loss of lordosis....those with a reversal can indicate whip lash.
Were u in a MVA ?
Diminished or an obstruction to CSF flow is what we look for to see if surgery is warranted.Then u look to see if u have a syrinx, disk issues, ICP, POTS, Sleep apnea, Ehlers-Danlos....vitamin and mineral levels....
The most important thing aside of ruling out ALL related conditions is to make sure u have a true Chiari specialist.
Healing from this surgery can take long, and even longer if the Dr is not well informed or experienced.
So do research Drs ...use the list we have, and take ur time to see how surgery may benefit u, cuz once u have surgery it will be some time b4 u can lift ur kids...
Not sure what mva is but the surgeon in Denver co said he need those results in befor scheduling surgery. He sent me to 2 more specialist for balance problems and memory lose also don't know what to expect from that but the csf flow is diminished and the lordosis is reversed that is what the report says
MVA = motor vehicle accident
Oh I am not familiar with a Dr in Denver, I know of one in Aurora ....
I thought that's what it stranded for but was not sure.and the answer is no I have not.and I go to Dr Steven ojemann he is in aurora co I believe
I am not familiar with that Dr, is he a Chiari specialist or is that ur PCP?
I am also taking pills to sleep I have a lot of trouble they worked for first days but not any more does that have to do with chiari also some nights I will not sleep at all do to very painfully head aches my head feels like it's pumping and about to explode is it normal to have those painfully head aches that bad or it's just how chiari goes
