Red Letter Day!!!
I also received an info packet in the mail from ASAP that includes a TON of good info. (Why they can't just post it on their website, I don't know, but that annoys me.) The info is good and I'm going to read through it thoroughly when I'm done here. They have a Medical Advisory Board that will refer you to specialists in your area. (Again, why not on the website?) I will (of course) be looking into the specialists that are local.
I mailed my MRI CD off to The Chiari Treatment Center in Colorado today and will wait to call them next Wednesday if I don't hear from them before then.
I went to the chiropractor after work and he adjusted everything below my neck and massaged my neck to relieve some of the tension. My neck is still really tight, but NOTHING like it was before I started seeing him three months ago. I realized that my smaller neck (as a result of relaxing some of the muscle spasms) is what is causing MANY people to ask if I'm losing weight. That works for me! :)
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.
