I am 32 have have just recently been diagnosed with Chiari Malformation on New Year's Eve, after having tests and MRI scans for problems with my neck since April 2015.
I have a C5-C6 prolapsed disc in my neck and deterioration of my lower spine, but when I was told that I have Chiari Malformation, everything clicked into place. I realise now that I have had the symptoms for years but never thought anything of it.
My case was referred to a Neurosurgeon in Stoke by my spinal surgeon in Oswestry on 19th January.
My symptoms have become increasingly worse during the past 6 months, and I am now having problems with my levels of concentration, speech, and I'm also dropping and bumping into things more often.
I'm just wondering how long others have had to wait from initial diagnosis to an appointment with a Neurosurgeon.
