I have CM 6.8 mm. and I have been through a roller coaster. I have seen 6 Neurologists and 2 Neurosurgeons that specialize in CM. I was told they cannot guarantee I will benefit from the surgery. What I found helpful is Craino therapy and acupuncture. I'm also careful about my weight. I'm still on Topomax which helps with the headaches. I use to get seizures/ muscles spasms everyday and now I'm getting them once a week. I'm careful about not lifting heavy objects as I realized this will trigger my symptoms. Stress also triggers the symptoms so you want to try to reduce any stressors in your life. I've done a lot of research about the decompression surgery and I'm not convinced it will cure or forever take away the symptoms. I will try other alternatives before I have a huge hole cut out and my c1 removed.
