I am 99% sure I have chiari malformation. I am in the process of waiting to see a neurologist. In the last week I've had a severe headache which has caused extreme neck pain and hurts to the touch on the top of my neck, radiating through my shoulders, nausea every day, dizziness and in a consultation with my spinal Dr recently I couldn't feel the pin pricks when he put them in my feet, legs and arms.
My GP put me on naproxen and anti nausea, should I be worried and does it matter if I wait 3-4 months for a neuro referral or is this something that needs a&he treatment and hospitalisation? I actually discovered there is a neurosurgeon who has a research interest in chiari at my local hospital but don't want to involve to many hospitals and Drs. At least if it got much worse I know where to go!
Advice is needed please.
