Low Cerebellum

I have been suffering from headaches and see a neurologist who sent me for an mri scan, he said he thought it was a nerve but he also told me I had low cerebellum? I didn't ask what this meant but since then I have been suffering from neck and upper back/shoulder pain. I would like to know if this is linked and if anyone knows what low cerebellum means. Any answers welcome

"Low Cerebellum" is the position of the cerebellum sometimes in individuals when it is near the opening of the brain into the spinal cord which is lower down. Let him diagnose it perfectly after the MRI, this is a possibiltiy what he thinks. Hope your next appointment and the MRI will clear all these doubts.

Only thing that comes to my mind would be a Chiari Malformation.
