I had type 1 Arnold chiari Malformation. I had the surgery in April of 2015.. fast forward to now and I still get headaches here and there but it's a lot better. I still have my days where my muscles hurt very badly in my legs. Does anyone else experience this?

    Hi,

    I experience muscle pain when I walk. Unfortunately, I'm at a point I have to stay in bed most of the time because of neck pain.

    I have a lot of other symptoms too. I hope you feel better.

      Hi Apple, when did you have your decompression..you really need to see your health care professionals so that they can refer you for pain management treatment

      I've been to pain management many times. Unfortunately, to no avail. I'm scheduled to go to neurosurgeon on 12th. I'm hoping for revaluation of my condition at that time. Thanks for your response.
