I know its a lot but I Need some advice and help
Please note that my writing/spelling is bad from missing so many day in school over my health. I am new and wish i would have found this site back in 2007
Question will be at the end. Thanks in advance for your help and taking the time to read.
Just a little on me… I have
- type 1 arnold chiari malformation
- Stage 2 kidney disease
- neurogenic Bladder and bowel (possible from 2in of fat on my filum terminale or bottom of spine)
- Weak muscles from lower back to toes
- Weak growth plates in feet
Now to start off i have known about these problems since i was 7or8 now 25. But the reason i am writing is bc i have concrens. I had surgery in 2007 to open up the foramen magnum to release spinal fulids. I havent been able to find a good doctor since i turned 18. Much love to my St. Louis childrens hosp family. I really didnt want to leave them
My headaches got better and life went on. Its 2018 and since about 2014 i have been having BAD mood swings that seem to get worse from crying to pissed to wanting to be alone. I have not wanted to clean house but just an hr or so every other day. I have this spell where if i hold my arms out & looking striaght. I cant see my right arm then i end up with a BAD headache on left side that grows all over and last for several days. Dizzy spells almost daily.
I took the risk and now have a healthy 10month old and a wounderful man. I just feel like im pushing him out the door. I dont want to lose him my child or my life. I feel like im slowly going crazy. I was never told the Chiari would possibly have a part in my mood.
My questions is
- Does the Chiari give you mood swings? Or do i need crazy meds?
- Have you had a 2nd surgery for spinal relase?
Please any advice will help good bad crazy idc. Im just trying to get to the bottom of this before i lose my family.
