My symptoms have followed a pattern. This began after a serious neck injury to C1/2 and C5/6. I say serious because I was nearly paralyzed and was lucky that I wasn’t! When I learned that Chiari can be triggered by a neck injury, I was intrigued. The spinal fluid was built up above c5 for too long.
The ringing in the ears started for a short time and now it is permanent. The eye blurriness seems to be headed that way. At first it was the same pattern as the ringing. It would last a short time and then it would stop. Now, my eyes are getting worse. I am wondering how bad it can get and has anyone gone blind with Chiari? I have been to eye specialists and they tell me my eyes are perfect. I can see 20 20. However, the blurriness is lasting longer and longer. I am concerned it will be permanent. My husband bought me a spy glass. Have people had to get glasses or did they even work because it seems to be a brain thing and not an eye issue.
Also, excessive thirst when all blood work is normal…anyone experience this? Thanks.
