I was diagnosed July/06 with Chiari malformation I. I had been going to doctors with facial
numbers, HAs, dizziness, ringing in ears, tingling
, fatigue ,unsteady gait, insomnia, diff swallowing, reflux for over 2 years before being diagnosed. I was intially diagnosed with migraines by a neurologist but continued to get worse. Another MRI was done and she referred me to a neurosurgeon who recommended occipital decopression surgery which was done sept/06.
