    To stop (and reverse symptoms) you need to research filum terminal dissectum surgery. It removes the cause of the downward pulling of the hindbrain (chiari tonsils), unlike the traumatic, 5 hour chiari decompression surgery which does not address the cause but merely gives the patient some temporary relief; most have the symptoms come back after said decompresssion surgery. The dissectum surgery however, is 45 minutes and is done right above the gluteal cleft (butt crack), and has the patient walking around the next day, and Advil for pain is usually all that is required. I had decompression surgery and had 4 weeks of false hope, and then had the dissectum surgery and it got me out of bed after three years, and gave me, my wife and children a really good quality of life. Do your research, and Godspeed.

      That is really good to know. I had decompression surgery 4 years ago and my symptoms have returned a few years ago. I recently moved to GA and the doctor told me the decompression surgery should have resolved the issues. I know this isn't the truth and am looking for a doctor who truly specializes in this. I will do the additional research on the procedure you referenced.
