Hi, I was diagnosed with Chiari Malformation Type 1 in late December of 2015 and boy has it been a whirlwind. I am 18 and have been experiencing symptoms since I was 13. Doctors never really took me seriously, but my mom insisted to have an MRI on my brain. They found the chiari, 10.3 mm, and I've been on the journey to normallcy ever since.
My NS ordered a CINE MRI and I was wondering if anyone could help me interpret the notes. I have an appt. soon, but I want to make sure I know what questions to ask, because, like most sergeuns, he has no bed size manner. NOT the friendlies.
