Hey, 24 year old female. So the last few years I have had some random symptoms, numbness in two toes, huge head aches, numerous different pains, numb hands, numb arms and a load more. Each time I went to the doctors I was fobbed off with something different each time. I can Only carry my 2 year old for about thirty seconds without loosing strength. So about four months ago my face started to go numb and now it feels as it I've gone to the dentist and been numbed. Doctor sent me to have an MRI as he was suspecting MS but I've had the results and it's Chiari 1 malformation, 12mm toncillar herniation and a syrinx from C3-T12. My GP admitted she didn't know what it meant. I have read up what I can online but there isn't much information. My GP referred me to a neuro surgeon but does this mean I need surgery? Any advice or anything really will be massively appreciated. Thanks in advance
