    I'm in UK and was told 2-3 weeks for doctors to get report. Then depends on how quickly they contact you or see you again.

    In UK it is normally 2-3 weeks, HOWEVER it does depend on your Dr/GP/ Neurologist. In my case I had a bad neurologist and it took 7 months to get results!!! Once referred to an NEUROSURGEON I was seen and opperated on within weeks. I knew  nothing about CM then.So if you've not heard within a 2-3 weeks get on to your medic and push your case.

    Hi there, I am in UK, my neurologist contact my gp and letting me know the result  in a mtter of 3 days - and my neurologist suggested me to have operation,as I was scare I ignored his advice only I realised after 3months of diagnosed I could not put up any longer with all the symptoms of CM and I agreed to have oepration, but I checked with Ann Conroy and have 2nd & 3rd opinion and get the neurosurgeon who has done lots of decompression procedures.

    So, be positive and take it easy in opinion as the best advice, drinking pllenty of water and gentle neck movement each morning is helping me a bit, when I feel pain/dizzy I will then have a bed rest...do not force yourself to do lots of things for your family let them start to take care of you...GOOD LUCK
