I was diagnosed with Chiari Malformation almost 2 years ago. I am very symptomatic - migraines, constant pressure in my head that changes with the weather, lethargy, weakness in my muscles, tingling in my extremities, memory issues, pain in my neck and upper shoulders and difficulty sleeping. I finally got to a neurologist about a year ago and they said that the it's borderline and my symptoms aren't from Chiari, it's just migraines and put me on Tpimax and Cymbalta. They told me to have my eyes checked and see a shrink, that I may have PTSD from years of domestic abuse. I did both and both disagreed. I have done research and everything comes back to Chiari being the issue, but no one will listen to me. They say "yes you have it but not enough for the symptoms. It may be chronic fatigue syndrome or fibromyalga." So what do I do?
