    As well as here there are a number of support groups on Facebook. They can be abit scary at first but you learn to ignore some of the horror stories. I only found out I had chiari in September so it’s still all new to me too

    Dear Kayla,

    You are caring about your friend perhaps ask her to join this group ...I search any website, I personally this one is the best...anyway, let your friend know its not doom and gloom, I am chiarian successful patient, I used to suffer terribly and effected me terribly I ended up house bound for over 2 years, I detested surgery, I wished I had done the soonest - Iwas suffering badly from head to toe..just unable to describe how horrible it was, but the soonest i woke up from the surgery - i am fine all the symptom gone, a part of  ache and pain of surgery..2 months healing is again likehell, but here I am over a year..I have my Quality of life back but I have to be careful though what I am doing - I am not doing lots of straining stuff..take it easy..here you go..

    I would def encourage your friend to join, I'm new to this diagnosis too and have found it so helpful. No one on the site is a medical professional but they have what the experts don't - experience of how it is to live with chiari and advice and tips on how to manage the condition in any way possible
