Yes, very interesting condition. I knew about it prior to me developing it...thinking I'd never have to deal with something like that. My aunt actually had this condition prior to me developing it, which was strange. She has a shunt too, and all for a different set of problems. Very strange deal for both of us to have similar problems, yet different. She had surgery for her chiari, and I have not yet. I hope to, though, with my brain sagging, they may not be able to operate for fear it may cause the sagging to worsen. So only time will tell. But the dizziness and balance issues are the most difficult of all the symptoms, to live with. So fingers crossed it will all work out how it is supposed to in the future.
Thanks for your comment.
