      Not to bad. I had a copy of a letter from Mr. Flint, best Neurosurgeon in country, who stated that roughly 20% of his patients report they still have some symptoms after decompression and cauterisation. I don't know about decompresstion only. It might be that with cauterisation the brain is accually acted upon thus affecting symptoms. Although reading through the comments on CM it appears that some American CM suffers do require more than one operation, not so in UK?

    Are talking about tingling in your extremities? I used to had that with my Chiari headaches along with vomiting. Never on its own though.

    Heheheh they drive you nuts don't they? Sorry found nothing to help (when I was on amitriptyline, the pins and needles stopped but now that I'm off them, they're back with a vengeance). I usually rub them against a hard edge for some temporary relief 😂
