Hello All- I am a recently diagnosed ACM patient. I have been sick majority of my life, I am 30 yrs old and have been very ill since Dec.3rd,2008. I passed out (yet again), but this time I had heart palpatations and low blood pressure. I had been suffering from a terrible headache for weeks. I was in the hospital for three days and they couldn't come up with an explanation. I had testing and a MRI that revealed 5mm herniation. The surgeon doesn't feel that I need surgery, but my back hurts so bad that I can barely sit at my desk. My head hurts but only through my left pupil and most of the time my left arm is numb. I feel like my life is falling apart and there is nothing that I can do. Does anyone have any advice?
