I had surgery for Chiari 1 malformation 4-12-07. Since then I have gone through so much. The same pains are coming back and then some so I am getting worried. It is getting hard to get through the day. I am afraid of what is ahead of me. I have seen doctor after doctor over the last couple of years and have tried everything from different meds to shots in the face! Does anyone have any advice? I don't want to stay medicated but I also am so tired of the pains.
