... You poor thing, having that happen at the movies!! One of lifes most embarressing moments for sure.:) You are sooo young to have so much going on. I'm an old lady at 42. To be 24 again!! My tingling started around that age. I hope they get a grip on whats going on with you soon. Chiari is cronic and there is no cure. Surgeries just stop the progression. It is also very...

... I started many years ago with tingling sensations in my left side. Drs said it was anxiety. 3-4 years ago, things went down hill fast. I had been rear ended and had not thought anything of it except that my neck was stiff. I started having alot of unexplained things and Dr's couln't understand what was going on as each test showed nothing. I had severe bladder and bowel... (14 replies)

... Hi Italia~ You sure do have a cocktail of diagnosis!! Funny but pseudo tumor cerbri is very common with Chiari. Chiari is when the skull is basically too small for the brain to fit. It squeezes in the base of the skull blocking the CFS flow (spinal fluids) and compresses the nerves. pseudo tumor cerbri is too much fluid. Which causes alot of head pain. I have blocked flow...

... Hi Italia~ Thats great!! I'm so glad it was easier for you this time around. It definately is a mind set thing. So contantly focusing on something else helps. And the maury drama was probobly louder than all that banging the machine makes!! LOL So now that you got through it, you'll be an old pro if you have to get through another MRI. I still today have to make myself not... (14 replies)

... Hi~ I haven't had the sitting MRI but the one laying on the table and they slide you in. When they get ready to put me in, I close my eyes and ask for a cover for them. I had a tech tell me too, its all in my head and I said "yup" but I'm still closing my eyes!! LOL They have a job because we are giving them work so stand up for yourself!! It is load, I know. My ears... (14 replies)

I know if I had peaked just once, I would start panicking. I have had several and to this day, dont know what the inside of the machine looks like. But you sound like its a very difficult thing...
