I am just dropping in to say hi & share a little.
Back in Oct of last year I was hurt at work & when finally seen by an ortho dr for the damage to my shoulder he later diagnosed me with Chiari 1 malformation. Since then I've been on a steady decline in health. I can no longer drive & had to have 16ins of y hair cut because I can't take care of it like I used to. Last week I went to the E.R with facial paralysis on my right side, vision loss, slurred speech & unable to use my right side at all. I had to wait 3hrs before finally taken to a room then another hour before seeing the dr. He didn't listen even when my mom told him all of what happened & my recent diagnosis of Chiari. His reply was "It can't be related to that." & sent me home with a referral to a local neurologist who can't see me until March. My local Women's Health Group sent a referral to another neurologist & I will be seen by him Monday.
Hopefully I can get something figured out soon because my job won't wait forever.
Thank y'all for being here for all who have this condition.
