For Everyone, Dont Stay With One Doctor's Point Of View

Posted , 8 users are following.

Hi my name is Jorge and I live in Uruguay, since I was born I suffer from painfull headaches. On October of 2015 I was told after a magnetic resonance that i had Chiari (6mm), and I would have my surgery on December 14th. Instead of not doing anything I searched on the internet and I found the Chiari assosiation in Argentina. I emailed the doctor and we arranged an appoinment on December 12th. When he asked me about my headaches he conclude that my headaches were not so typical of Chiari. After that my surgery was postponed, and I was told to get another magnetic resonance but this time studying the cerebrospinal fluid flow. When I got the results and I showed them to this doctor, he told me that the flow was common and that I suffer from Migraine. Now I am medicated and I am living a normal life. (In case you want to know, I play football and rugby). Hope this is useful and good luck!
