My entire life i had issue's with headache's,dizziness,concentration, memory, periods where i would get so dizzy i pass out, I would tell my doctor about my symptoms and she would always blame it on my back, cuz i have also always had issue's with that, i was diagnosed with scoliosis when i was about 17, DDD a few years ago, i had a nerve blockage done, but it did nothing for me or my pain, the wanted me to have it done again but i refused seeing how it didn't do anything but make my problems worse the first time, My symptoms such as my headache's and stuff subsided for awhile so i was trying to live a normal life, still had back pain, but was prescribed Gabapentin for that, which didn't take the pain fully away but i was able to manage it better. One day i woke up to get ready for work, i felt weird, nauseous, headache, and weak, but i stuck it out, when my shift ended i was walking home and i vomited twice, it was yellow, foamy, smelled horrible, my fiance kept telling me to go to the hospital, i don't like hospital's, but it lasted 3 day's, so the 3rd day i decided to go, they did blood work, and other testing, came in and said they found something large in my stomach, I was admitted to have a endoscopy done, which came back normal, so then a ultrasound, normal, test on my gallbladder, normal, last step they did a intervaginal ultrasound, now that showed a cyst on my right ovary, which i am confused cuz the bulge, which is visible and they said they found was on the left, still doesn't explain my symptoms. Anyways since that day i have not felt normal, headache that has not went away, nausea, dizziness, confusion, forgetting things, which is getting worse, when walking my body feels like it's pulling to the right, or down, poor balance, blurry vision, kinda like a glossy film over them, and a few other things, but one day i awaken in the middle of the night with a headache that felt like someone or something was just squeezing my head, felt like it was gonna explode, it was excruciating, once again my fiance begged me to go to the hospital, but after the 4th day i caved in and went, doctor asked if i ever had any testing of my head, my doctor isn't one for radiation, so at that time i have not, so he did one, He came in within 10 mins of my test and said the ct scan showed a Chiari, he gave me a shot for my headache which didn't touch it, he refered me to a neuroligist, when i went to see her she was rude and said there is no way that's what it is and said she believes it is fibromyalgia, and ordered me a MRI, which i had done 2 weeks ago, My results came in the mail 3 day's ago and yes it definitely is Chiari and in the letter states they believe that is what is causing my symptoms, now today a secretary from her office calls me and said their was a typo error and that my symptoms are not coming from the Chiari, but from these discussion's and from google my symptoms are exactly the same as everyone explains, and exactly what i read online, she asked me if i wanted her to refer me to a neurosurgeon, of course i said yes, cuz my symptoms are coming from something, I believe it is coming from Chiari but i am just curious if anyone else had this happen to them? I am just confused how they can make a typo like that, and why my symptoms are exactly what is explained with Chiari? Any advice is greatly appreciated as i am new to this, but they definitely said i had since birth, i don't know much about anything, I also don't like doctor's of any sort, hospital's or anything of that nature, but i am so sick of feeling like this, hurts to walk, can't get outta bed half the time, hurts to bend, move my head, all i wanna do is sleep, i never wanna get up, i could keep going, but please if anyone has any advice or recommendations let me know. Also so my discussion is not in paragraph's, my phone won't allow it, i have tried and i don't have a computer.....Thanks
