I was diagnoised in December 1998 at a small hospital after having am MRI for headaches. I was told at the time to not worry about it and that it did not require surgery at the time but just to keep an eye on it. I followed up a year later and was told no need to come back. I done well for several years and the last 3 years have slowly gotten worse. It started with more miagraines then about a year ago I began having problems with my left arm going numb and having dull to sharp pains shooting up and down my arm. My Neurologist put me on muscle relaxer and sleeping pill at night to help ease the pain and help me sleep. He told me that my nerve was irratated from my compressed disc and put me on light duty. I go to a GREAT Chriopractor but NOT for adjustments :) He does laser therapy and massage therapy. He is very Chiari friendly and is well educated about this disease UNLIKE most! Over the last week my symptoms have gotten so much worse and the laser therapy nor the massages have been helping. My pain pills are not working and I can eat the muscle relaxers like candy becasue they do not help either. I haven't taking them often until the last 4 days :( I am in so much pain and I know no one knows how I feel... I wanna crawl in a hole and cry!!!! Prayers appreciated!
