So at this point, with no syrinx, no tethered cord, and no evidence that my swallowing issues are Chiari related, my guess is that next week my NS will advise against surgery
. I am OK with this altough I have had a Chiari headache for about 6 days now...nothing seems to be working, not even my usual stand-by, Excedrin. I am also having a lot of colored blobs in my vision, which are different from my usual migraine aura. Some dizziness, but not too bad.
