I had an MRI 6 weeks ago and was diagnosed with Chiari 1 Malformation with an 8mm descent. My GP had advised that I would most probably need surgery due to the fact that my symptoms had increased - he sent me for the MRI suspecting that I had MS.
However I saw the neurologist today and he says that my symptoms are unrelated and that 'poor neurosurgeons shouldn't be expected to operate on people who don't need surgery'.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not desperate for an operation that's not required, but I felt that he was quite dismissive and I'm more confused and unsure than before I went in.
Has anyone had a similar experience?
