I have been doing research for awhile now about Chiari as many of m symptoms point to it. I have SEVER head pain constantly that never goes away numbness in the face tingling in the hands and feet. sometimes the pain is so bad i can't even lift my head at all. My vision can beome blurry and sometimes i even loose sight in my right eye for a bit from there being so much pressure. There is ALWAYS pressure. Sometimes it feels like my face is being stabbed with an ice pick or burned with a blow torch as well. I am always dizzy and nautious 99% of the time. I have trouble swallowing food and to many more things to list at the moment. I first started expieriencing symptoms 2 years ago. Had an ER Dr say he noticed something that looked like Chiari Malformation type 1 on my MRI but to bring it up to the nurologist that i was going to see in 2 weeks and see what he said. A few days later my PCP Mentioned Chiari Aswell. Went to the Nuroloist and he said its just a migrain. I have had migrains before and this type of pain/pressure feels very different. Ive never had a migrane last for 2 years. I just wanted other input and to feel like im not loosing my mind. I am in the prosses of getting a new nurologist.
