in May of 2016, I was diagnosed with Arnold Chiari malformation type I 4-5mm with a variety of symptoms present. Then, at the end of December 2016, I had another MRI showing the malformation at 9-12mm (report read 9mm left side, 12 mm right side). The symptoms come and go in severity and frequency but have not changed much from the time of the original diagnosis. Is this something I should be concered about? It seems to be a rapid progression, doubling in size over a 7month period. Has anyone in this group experienced this and, if so, what has been the extent of your progression? I have four small children and want to be as informed as possible as to what the future of my progression could possibly hold. Is this a normal progression rate?
