Brain MRI Scheduled
Why the delay you ask? Because I have to pick up a CD of the films from the hospital and bring it with me to the appointment and I didn't want to risk not being able to get them in time for the only other available appointment on the 13th. Since this isn't life or death, I'm low on the appointment priority. They have to leave openings for the really serious neurological people.
I'm going to call and make an appointment with UCLA. The doctor there is on the medical advisory board for ASAP (found that out in the info I got yesterday) so I might as well get his opinion while I wait to hear from Colorado.
This is just my story of my experience with Chiari. Until I was diagnosed, I'd never heard of it, and I just want more people to be aware of it. I'm not a doctor, so don't quote me on any of this stuff - k? If you are looking for information about Chiari Malformation, a lot of the more informative posts are the older ones.
