Hello,

You have always been so helpful, so I was wondering if you knew much about a Cerebral Tonsillis Ectopia? I had an MRI due to dizziness issues ordered by my neurologist. He said the MRI was fine, and the report will show this information. It states it is 2mm in size. I am reading very conflicting info on this. Some say it's not a concern, and dr's wait and watch, while others say even at 2mm it can cause symptoms from fluid blockage and needs a CSF MRI done.
My questions specifically is since I am 34 yrs old, would I expect that the 2mm will grow in size, and are there certain things I should avoid, (like alcohol, or jogging)...? I will be asking my neuro this info on 3/4, but I am curious until then as I can not locate this specific answers online. I appreciate any and all info you may have in regards this abnormality. THank you!

Thank you, but I can' t really help you with this neurological condition. This is not a medical condition that I handle in my primary care practice....I deal with a totally different kinds of "tonsils".
