Hi.


Well I am doing ok. Just a problem getting medicine for these headaches. We are not so lucky as the people over seas.

Had the decompression, Dr. J. Steyn at Wilgers did the op. Help me all the way but last year said he has nothing more he can do for me.



Guess its just how it is.

Wow someone in SA with Chiari

Hi,

So glad im not alone!

I was diagnosed 5 years ago, Type 1 with a 7.2mm protrusion.

I was on strong pain meds for a year but have been going strong without them for 4 years apart from over the counter pills. I have been suffering with bad headaches the last 2 months and its just not going away! I have made an appointment but can only see the doc in 2 months.

How have you been coping and have you gone for surgery?

Take Care,

Angelique - SA

Hi Angelique

My wife has been diagnosed with a 5 to 6mm Chiari by DR Tuewen at the Olivedale.

Would love to get in touch.
