Aug 20, 2018 · Diagnosis and Treatment of Chiari Malformation Spurs Nikki Prins to Reach Out to Others

I was diagnosed with Arnold Chiari 1 in 2011. i seen a specialist after i got the MRI back . They said it wasn't bad enough for them to treat. I was having problems with Headaches, balance, tension headaches, and bad anxiety. So now several years later my headaches have progressed to the point of missing tons of work. In the meantime diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and Migraines . I got a Ct scan and it was all clear and i have an MRI scheduled tomorrow to see if that shows any progression of the Chiari. I am terrified I'm 46 years old i don't want a brain surgery with no guarantee of any results . Keep your fingers crossed for me .
