Treatment Ratings

    Not Improved
    Rest, Meditation
    Worsened
    NSAIDs - Anti Inflammatory drugs, Massage, Acupuncture, Wait and See

Severely limited. Can't walk very far, trouble seeing and hearing. Limited driving. Fired from jobs due to being sick and having surgery too often. Failed fusions didn't help the Chiari symptoms.
Chronic head pain prevents normal daily activity 90% of days. I do sleep great though.
