I really dont know where to go from here. I live in Georgia I was told i have Chiari in December of 2010. The neurologist told me not to worry about it and gave me Topamax to prevent the migraines and Neproxin to help with the pain. I have three small children and i can not take the topamax because it makes me very sleepy and the neproxin does nothing to help the pain. I have neave pain that shoots from my lower back and hip down through my left leg sometimes its so bad that it makes it hard to breath. I thought the loss of 40 lbs would help but it doesnt seem to be helping.
When i asked my neurologist questions about the symptoms he just seemed to blow it off . the words " you have a condition called Chiari But dont worry about it" do not settle easily with me
I have been to the hospital at least 3 times the doctors look at you like your stupid tell you theres nothing they can do and give you pain killers and muscle relaxers. Where do i go from here? IS there any help close that i can afford . Please any help on doctors, main management , or any other help would be great and i would be very thankful.
