Do you feel Tired of going to the Doctor? Feel free to share it with us!
I have had pressure migraines my entire life. Pressure when I laugh, cry, weather changes and of course just the normal ones. In September 2016 my new PC ordered a CT scan which found Chiari Malformation 1. I was referred to a neurologist in Brunswick since not many doctors are familiar with the condition.
After oral medication and injections were not helping with the pain, I was referred to a neurosurgeon.

In July 2017 I had a bone only decompression and my C1 removed to make remove for my cerebellum. Unfortunately, the surgery was not successful and within 4 months of surgery, all my symptoms have returned plus some. I know have neuropathy in all limbs, nerve damage in both arms and have to wear wrist braces to bed.
There are days in my life where I can almost forget about my condition, I live a good full life. Most of the days are not as good. I know that I can fight this condition and that I am stronger than this. Nevertheless, it’s hard going to the doctor and not knowing what else they are going to find.
AT THIS POINT, IT FEELS AS IF EVERY TIME I GO TO THE DOCTOR I GET A NEW DIAGNOSIS. ON TOP OF DEALING WITH A MIGRAINE AND NECK PAIN ALMOST DAILY.
