Hi Karen, Thanks for your e-mail response. Yes, I did have a brain MRI by my neurologist about a month a ago. My doc said nothing much showed up. All he did say was I had some "bright spots" on the MRI. He was not sure what that meant, but felt confident it was nothing really serious. The other comment he made was possibly I had MS at one time and "it burned itself out." This doc never mentioned Chiari Malformation to me. I will keep going back to see him every three months. My original visit to see the neurologist was because I am getting tingling, numbness and burning sensations in my hands, feet face and top of my head. I was referred to him by my rheumatologist. Thank you. J.W.
