Treatment Ratings

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

It has greatly reduced my quality and enjoyment of life..
Being in constant pain and hurting in so many places vision disturbances, balance issues, dizzy spells... THEN to have so many DR's treat you like you're lying because THEY ARE UNAWARE OF CHIARI is so deeply frustrating .
