I had a brain MRI/MRA done and a C-spine MRI done separate times for the same reasons.

Anyways, the c-spine mri didn't say much accept for "right posterior lateral disc protrusion extending into the entrance of the right lateral foramen" and it also says "Posterior Fossa and Brainstem, no Chiari malformation."

The Brain Mri says differently.. It says" There is a small, incidental Tornwaldt cyst involving the nasopharyngeal region. This is of no clinical significance. Very mild mucosal thickening in both maxillary and ethmoid sinuses.

The cerebellar tonsils are somewhat low lying, and there is a borderline Chiari 1 malformation.

1. Intracranial contents are negative. borderline low-lying cerebeller tonsils.

2. Mild muscoal thickening in both ethmoid and maxillary sinuses.

So I was wondering how often are these taken seriously? Also, is it just difference in oppinions why the radiologist who read my c-spine said "no chiari" and the one who read the brain said "borderline chiari"? I mean the neurologist despite all of my symptoms has told me I am fine and suggested I do some physical therapy or something and follow up with my GP..

I went ahead and scheduled and appt with and ENT regarding the Tornwaldts cyst.

Here are the symptoms that I deal with daily...

Headaches (daily and migraine)
Tingling (hands,feet,and face)
twitching hands and now other muscles throughout my body
balance issues
muscle fatigue
calves ache and are sensitive to cold or air movement
feet hurt just after standing 15mins or even sometimes less
forearms and elbows hurt
acid reflux
constant sinus drainage
heat senstive
low back pain
neck pain
heavy painful periods
facial pain

These are just about half of them..

any help is appreciated!

thank you!
