My Story:
I am 44 yrs old and was diagnosed 11 yrs ago with chiari malformation. I have since been diagnosed with fibro, IBS, reflux, chronic sinnusitis, TMJ, arthritis, bursitis, RLS, neuropathy, tinnitis, tremors, CFS, chronic anxiety and depression and a few more minor ailments. I have had 2 chiari surgeries, hip replacement and tethered cord surgery. I am still in pain 24/7. I take narcotics everyday along with a LOT of other meds. I am divorced and I have a wonderful son who is now 22. I didn't post a picture b/c I am in the process of losing weight and do not have a recent pic.
