Chiari question....yea whats new, haha

Postby sparks42 » Wed Jul 04, 2007 5:21 pm

I've been looking at a lot of MRI pictures...and diagrams of CM and I don't think I quite understand it.

Does anyone have any good pictures of CM that could assist me?

What I'm trying to ultimately figure if CM can be misdiagnosed as a cyst.

Because I have SM....wondering if I have CM.....waiting on my Neuro referral

But my mom has a "cyst" at the top of her spine where it meet her brain....and she gets the same kind of headaches I get.

I'm trying to link this all together. I'm just overly curious ;)

Any help greatly appreciated! :)

You can check any of the Chiari-based websites. Some have images and some don't. You can check Google images but I don't think viewing films would be of help to you. Radiologists have been known to miss Chiari so I doubt a layperson could see it. I had to have my NS point it out to me and I'm still not sure of what I saw. :?
