After suffering from many symptoms I went to my GP ( March 2016) and then to a chiropractor who odered a MRI based on my complaints. She suspected Chiari and the MRI showed that. I went to my neurologist ( May 2016) with the MRI and he diagnosed chronic migraine and acknowledged the chiari but did not think it was causing the symptoms. My GP also thought it was migraine. I have been taking 40 mg amitriptyline which has helped alot but I began having terrifying hallucinations so my dose was reduced to 30mg but symptoms are coming back. My neurologist has recommended botox injections as the next step to help. Has anyone had any success with these injections. I understand they will be on the forehead between the eyes, near the ears and back of the neck. Some of my symptoms include headache ( not severe) buzzing in my ears and head, visual problems- moving eyes back and forth sometimes is just too much, dizziness, tightness around and pressure on my chest, dull ache between my shoulder blades, tingling of lips and sometimes face, strange pulling sensation in my ears, sweating, chills, difficulty thinking and concentrating, stiffness, etc. etc. Thanks for any thoughts or help you can give.
