Do any of you experience a worsening of your chiari headaches the more you talk? I feel like as the day goes on and the more social I am, or when I am at work as a teacher and I lecture a lot, my headaches worsen. Also, do any of you feel like there is a tightening and weakening of the muscles in your neck, even the front of your neck, and cheeks and jaw? It almost feels like all you want to do is stop talking and give your neck and face a rest? Plus the muscles around the neck feel sore when I put my fingers to them and massage them, I call them trigger points.
I actually thought I had a TMJ issue for over two years, and I sought really expensive treatments to fix these symptoms. After two years nothing got better and that’s when a doctor ordered me to get an MRI of my neck and that’s when they found I had a 9.6 and 8.4 mm herniations of my tonsils. I do believe now that everything I thought was TMJ was actually the chiari symptoms.
Anyone else have a similar misdiagnoses where you thought it was TMJ disorder when it really wasn’t?
