I have been seeing a neurologist for Cluster Headaches and throbbing headaches in the back of my head/neck. He said that my MRI shows that my cerebellar tonsils are herniated and could cause pressure on my nervous system. He said he'd keep an eye on it, order blood work, and come back in 6 months. Well, dummy me didn't ask any questions, and now that I get home and look this up on the internet I keep finding Chiari Malformation. I have all the symptoms (I've been to ENTs, everything...ringing in ears, hoarseness, double/blurred vision, numbness on one side of my body, typical heartrate of 125, occasional heart palpitations...etc.) So, my question is for those of you who know something about Chiari....is a herniated cerebellar tonsil the same thing as Chiari Malformation....or does it depend on how many mm? (He didn't tell me, and I didn't know to ask).

Thanks!
