I'm now at last going to see my neurologist to clarify all the results from MRI EEG CT and other tests I can't remember some ultrasound on the neck.
I've only spoken to the receptionist today and she has read the letter being sent out to me asap it has a lot of medical literature on it which I didn't understand and possibly couldn't hear properly , I know she said MRI showes 3mm h tonsils and there are other complications shown two, usless I know I forget things a lot sorry .
My question is as I know I've got to see a neurosurgeon after how many of us CM's have been successfully reduced the symptoms without other complications after surgery .
To be honest I'm trying to look at the quality of life if I do have surgery and how to ask the neurologist about alternative solutions .
I know there have been a lot of support from you all who have had surgery and I admire you for that , I would so so like to get back to somewhere near I was which was extreme sports and a lot of physical outings as at the moment I'm housebound.
I'm very possitve in life as a problem is just finding the right solution .
If it has to be surgery then so be it but if I know the pros and cons I can take it with me to the neurologist.
At the moment I have constant headache and neck pain every day with bad tinnitus and loss of hearing in both ears.
Weaknesses in my legs and constant dizziness feeling drunk .
I collapse loosing all body functions and loss of speach .
I also shake most days some worse than others and get shadowing and black spots on my eyes if that makes sense and numbness of face and tongue.
So any information I can take with me would rely help make my decision .
A big thankyou to everyone take care Paul.
