Hoping for some advice,
After being fobbed off for a good few months with numerous trips to the doctors and neurologists about my head and my neck and vision and speech problems and no one listening to me about me saying something is seriously wrong and these aren't my migraines (suffered since i was 11) and being told yeah yeah they've just changed and me continuously talking about feeling an immense pressure at the back of my head....they found a chiari malformation by accident whilst I was in hospital with meningitis a couple of months ago.
I have been referred to a neurosurgeon but am told these can take months. Now, my problem is i'm scared, i have no one to talk to, i only have Dr Google to rely on, i'm suffering alot and i don't know how to help myself.
I wanted an indian head massage and a friend that owns a spa says this is a big no no. I also have Rheumatoid Arthritis and am currently off all my medications because of the meningitis and that has retriggered childhood asthma and the last 2 weeks i have been battling pneumonia therefore no way can i be on immunosuppessants right now- so might a 'float' help or will that also cause damage to the chiari? I don't even know if that is a stupid question?
Thanks in advance and i'm sorry the long post, feeling very alone and sad right now...
