Hi all I'm new to all this and could really use some help :) In January of 2010 I was told I had a syrinx in my spine near T3-T5. They had done an MRI of my C and T spine and brain but this was the only thing that they found at the time. My symptoms then were dizziness and headaches in the occipital region ALL the time. In the summer of 2011 I started getting the dizziness again and the headaches were really bad. Also my lumbar area is untouchable, you touch it or if I lean up against something it brings me to tears, my hands and arms would get this weird feeling (like someone was pulling long hair up and down them) and then they would get tingly and numb. Well they did another MRI and I still had the syrinx but they also found that I had Chiari Malformation 1 but said there is nothing that they could do for me and sent me home. Well my symptoms are starting to get worse now and I was wondering if the following are any symptoms that any of you have had: nausea (like all the time and it makes me not eat), really harsh head aches in the lower back of the head made worse by laughing too much, coughing, sneezing, getting too angry/excited, sometimes my right eye will lose some vision (and this is the only eye I have so this makes things hard) sometimes the vision will go in and out with throbbing of headaches, I'm dizzy all the time whether I'm laying down, sitting or whatever (made worse by closing eyes), my neck hurts all the time, range of motion in neck is limited, tired and weak all the time, lymph nodes at the back of head are swollen often, when I make my head go forward I can hear what sounds like liquid squishing in the base of my skull, my hands and arms still get the "hair" feeling and tingly and numbness, I get off balance when walking and will sometimes almost fall over just standing or sitting there, my legs hurt so bad all the time (not made worse or better by anything), my toes will turn purple at random times (not brought on by being in the cold), my muscles feel like they get tired abnormally easily, occasionally I have trouble with speech (it's like it has trouble coming out the right way like my words and letters within the words are jumbled up). If anyone could give me some advice or let me know what symptoms you have experienced?? Should I see a different neurologist?
