    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    I recently had an MRI that showed Low Lying Cerebral Tonsils. They are 4mm into the top of my spinal column. I had an MRI of my mid back to make sure there wasn't a Syrnix....a fluid filled sac in my spinal column. There was no Syrnix.
    Now what do I do? There is a whole communicty of people on Chiari One support group that share the struggles they have with doc's taking them seriously. I am one of them. I don't want to go private but I have to do something. Does anyone have any experience with this brain / pain problem. IF so , I would love to hear it.
    Thanks, Lisa
