I was hospitalized with so much pain
and was released from Stanford
hospital saying I had Chiari Malformation 8! Saw another NS and said it was really only a 3 or 4 and that I was not bad enough to need surgery. Two years later I'm still suffering with neck pain, headaches, dizziness every time I stand from sitting, body weakness, pressure in my head, and fullness and pressure in my ears, I'm not myself anymore. Some days are worse than others, but every morning starts the same way.
