Woo Hoo!!! So glad to hear about your progress!!  PLEASE remember to still take it slow...doing too much too soon can cause a set back.  I can't believe how much pain I dealt with on a daily basis until it was gone.  Congrats to you and welcome to "the other side" of the mountain!!

  Whooooooo hoooooooooo ...lol...Congratulations on quitting smoking...smoking will constrict blood vessels and nerves which with chiari are already being compressed...so, to rid urself of that added effect is great!

So glad u r feeling better...it is about time ((hugs))

Wow, so pleased that you are feeling so good. I hope that it continues for you, but don't do too much too soon. Take it slowly. Also congratulations on giving up smoking. I am working on this.......a few cigarettes at a time. Take care of yourself
