My condition of chiari malformation affects my life on a daily basis . No dr can seem to find a relief and neurosurgeons tell me I'm not bad enough for surgery which I'm not sure I would want anyway as it's not a cure and could make me worse. Some of my Drs say chiari is not the cause of my issues but can't explain what is or my unexplained 40 lb weight loss when I've tried for years to loose weight without any success. I'm tired of feeling sick every day and no one being able to tell me why I've changed my job twice , sold my house , to help my condition and done everything they've asked but nothing has helped I'm tired of feeling sick all the time!
