Hello! I recently had two concussions within two months. Due to the symptoms lingering my dr had me do an mri where they diagnosed me with chiari malformation and sent me a referral to neurology. I still haven’t met with them and I’m really anxious about it and what will happen

      Oh my god I got diagnosed the same way! When I was 10, I apparently got knocked over by someone else and hit a pole, which knocked me unconscious. Got sent for a CT scan, had a concussion and they also found out I had the condition so I was sent to get an MRI.

      Doctors here in Indiana don’t even know what Chiari is !!!! So if u find a good doc let me know

      Hi love I am the Missouri rep for the chiari and Syringomyelia foundation. How can I help? The first thing to do is find a chiari specialist, where do you live?

        @GirlyCaptain79 I live in Wisconsin near Milwaukee but I’m totally willing to travel. The doctor who ordered the mri was a sports medicine doctor so he wouldn’t give me more info on the diagnosis
