Hi there my name is Elizabeth and I was diagnosed with boderline Chiari last year and I just have a question I hope someone can answer for me. In the last year I have also lost 50 pounds but i feel like I am not any stronger then I was before. In fact I have days my legs and arms don't work as great as other days while I am at boot camp. Is that normal and is there anything I can do to strengthen...
