Treatment Ratings

    Wait and See,

I went to the neurosurgeon around this time last year and all he told me was that he couldn't do anything for at least another year and a half. He gave me no medicine or any options to help. I've been in constant pain for so long. Nothing helps. People don't believe that I'm in as much pain as I am so I just have to deal with it by myself. Chiari is awful.
