I've been diagnosed with Chiari by MRI I asked my PCP to order. Symptoms have been generally mild to date, however have been dealing with foggy vision since last Tuesday. I know vision disturbances can be caused by Chiari, but my mother and grandfather both died from stroke, so I worry. Additionally, my mom had a TIA prior to her stroke that caused her to lose vision in one eye. I have a sick visit this afternoon with the PA in my dr's office and optometrist on Thursday (my grandmother had macular degeneration to boot) and I'm assuming the PA will just tell me to go to the ER if I think I need to. I guess the only way to rule it out is by CT scan, but I don't want to be getting loads of radiation on a routine basis. Anybody have thoughts on this?
