Saw my GP today for annual checkup. Doesn't think there is much more that any doctor can do about Chiari:
A. It's a rare defect. Hardly anyone has it, except those of us in group forums across the globe.
B. Doctors don't know much about it so they try to treat what they can.
C. Fewer Doctors are going into Neurology. So fewer to choose from.
D. Even if scar tissue is causing some symptoms post surgery, there is nothing anyone can do about it. If you try to laser scar tissue it comes right back.
E. So, my GP is looking at what other drugs I am taking that could be causing my dizziness, etc. Going to start going off meds- one at a time to see if I need to be on them and see if going off them makes a difference.
F. Next: Find ways to cope with having Chiari. . . . .
