Once we figured out the abdomen pain he wanted to know why I was having such bad headaches. I told him where my pain was and he ordered a CT Scan. The scan did come back abnormal and he said I probably have one of two conditions but wanted to get an MRI done to be sure. The 2 conditions he thinks I might have are:
a condition involving the greater occipital nerve
I could have been born with the chiari 1 and it may or may not have anything to do with the pain I am having.I need to call on Monday to make an appt to go in and review the results. He said that in most cases both can be eased with medication depending on how much I can tolerate the headaches. Right now nothing helps the pain. They sent me home with Vicodin which is a joke. They did give me a steroid shot of prednisone that helped alot but they said I can't go home with that.
So that is where I am and how life can change in a moment.
