Our daughter was just diagnosed with Arnold Chiari and it shed light on my own health. I've been suffering with symptoms for three years. I am going to take my MRI to the pediatric neurosurgeon and show them. No one in my town has been able to diagnose me. I would go to another doctor if I were you. Get a second opinion and be your own best advocate. Most doctors I've found are clueless on Arnold Chiari Malformation.
