Hi everyone,

I went to see a fibro specialist (my regular doctor recommended him) he confirmed what I already knew, that I do have fibromyalgia. He was great and spent over an hour with me. I left his office a little shaken up, because because of some of my symptoms, and I did so poorly on the balance tests he did he thinks I may have chiari malformation. I have to go for a special MRI that is on the cerebellum tonsils part of the brain. Anyone hear about this. The more I read the scarier it seems.

Thanks for any info

I have terrible balance problems (my rheumy is pretty concerned seeing as how I am only 21 years old!) but what is chiari malformation?? I think I have heard of it once before but never asked questions... I could look it up I suppose.. just seeing if you could explain it a little bit...
