I was so upset recently. The neurologist that diagnosed me said I was a good candidate for surgery and it was the only cure. So she set me up with a neurosurgeon who I am still waiting for an appt with. I was scared but glad there was something I could do. The other day I went to emerg because I couldnt stand up, kept falling (never happened before)all was well though probably just another bad flare up. but the neuro resident mentioned that I have "mild" chiari and most dont do surgery on chiari 1. I couldnt believe it. I hope thats not the case, what the heck. I said no thats not true I have a 10mm herniation and symptoms rule me life so as far as I knew I am eligable as Im over 5mm!!!!! I think she just didnt know what she was talking about. I mean the nurses were looking it up on the internet so.... also this dumb dr said by the way dizziness isnt a symptom so surgery will do nothing for that,what!! I said your wrong everything I 've researched over the past few months says otherwise-I mean its your balance part of your brain that is being squeezed so duh..... maybe I should not get down and just realize this girl obviously has no clue?
