I was diagnosed with Chiari Malformation in 2008, on only the left side of my brain. Since the neurosurgeon does not know that surgery will be beneficial, he refused to operate. I am getting an MRI within the next few weeks to see if my Chiari has spread to the right side as well, but until then, my pain doctor will not do anything to help. We have tried physical therapy, accupuncture, numerous pain medications and preventatives, and recently we have been doing cervical facet blocks on the left side. I am in constant pain and was wondering if anyone had any other ideas? Things that have worked for you, when surgery was not an option.. Any ideas would be helpful!
