I hope your insurance will cover it soon, because you deserve to be without this pain!  If they decide not to cover it or continue to give you the run around, could you maybe do a payment plan with this doc?  Its something to look into, or find one that can do payments.

Yeah I had the surgery.  Mine didnt offer an iv because he gives local anesthetic in with the block...all at once.  I would call around the Denver area...

The occipitals.  Now that the numbing medication has worn off, the pain is worse than before.  Probably my normal pain and pain from the procedure.  I get a second round next week and if that doesn't work the doc wants to try something else.

Those are what I am getting.  My pain specialist is dr. Kenneth Lewis in Fruita.  His Physician Assistant is extremely knowledgeable of all aspects of the chiari malformations.  He came from a chiari specialized hospital on the east coast.  I am lucky to have found him!  I'll definetly let you know!

Im afraid we are in the same situation. Ha never goes away. The more i do, the worse it gets or towards evening. Ialmost went to the er at 2am it was soo bad, but stuck it out. If i find out ne thing that helps i will let you know. Heat is all for now and pain meds but not much help. Hope you can relax and feel better.

Thanks for thinking of me!  I've actually had a rough week. Today the whole family is supposed to drive to Tucson for a Birthday Party.  Its about an hour and 45 min. drive and I'm not looking forward to it. Driving has become difficult, and with Chirari acting up- it should be even more difficult. Then a house guests arriving late tonight.  Happy my husband will be off this long weekend to help!  Still waiting for new insurance to arrive so I can begin my "Royal run Around". How are you "settling" in at work? I'm actually quite curious as to how much you can do now compared to before. Do you still have the same limitations as before?  Do you feel like you'll be able to work "normally" from now on?  Trying to find some direction for the future.  Hope your weekend is awesome, and THX again!

The cymbalta is workin somewhat along with pain meds. Still not myself. A lil stressed tho cause im laid off. Maybe for a month or two, not sure yet exactly but i was lookin forward to gettin back to work to catch up on bolls, ya know. The cymbalta makes me feel a lil weird. But my racy heart from autonomic dysfunction keeps actin up. Gotta call dr about that

Just a quick note to say hi! I saw that you went back to work and had a good 1st day other than being exhausted.  That is great!  How long were you out total?  It is reassuring to see someone went back to work and did not feel like they were dying:)

You are in my thoughts and prayers as you head into this procedure.
I was curious about the fusion because I too have neck issues. My MRI stated c2c3 disc desiccation, c3c4 same, c4c5 normal :), c5c6 disc desiccation-bulging- at patent central canal (???), c6c7 disc ces. posterior cervical bulging, small posterior disc annular tear. c7t1 normal.  So I start normal, get messed up inbetween and return to normal I guess.
I havent been seen by a Dr yet, but was curious what the ns do with the chairi and spine issues.
I so hope that the ha stop for you after this surgery.
Take your time healing! I'll be praying for you.

Thank you for your Insurance wisdom!  I am trying to get my husband to find time to drop by the HR office and talk it over with them, but any advice/tips I can give him to discuss are a bonus!  Unfortunate part is new benes dont start until Jan. We are unsure how long we can put off finding a Dr, and realize if we find one with current insurance-which I love-(no co pays)- they may not be covered under new plan. Just trying to get my ducks in order- so to speak. Looking into starting with getting me signed up with my husbands life insurance-didnt see the point in the past, but things have changed.
How have you been feeling this week?
