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
