Not usually: General anesthesia in the hands of a skilled anesthesiologist is a safe approach. However there are circumstances when during anesthesia, blood pressure falls too far and for too long, or there is a prolonged period of lack of oxygen, that can result in brain damage. If you are considering surgery, speak to your surgeon and the anesthesiologist about the risks.

See psychiatrist: You should see a psychiatrist or clinical psychologist who can take a thorough history and interpret the test and your score. Trying to interpret the score without getting to know your history who you are, is an inexact approach.

Vascular: your symptoms sound like a vascular issue, not due to the chiari malformation. Speak to your doctor about an evaluation with a vascular specialist.

This was very helpful. Thanks! Thank you, Doctor. "Maybe" is the most common answer I get and, given that two neurologists have ruled out ALS, Parkinsons, etc. that will have to do!

This was very helpful. Thanks! I have 2nd opinion on 6/11 but this doc has me feeling like nothing is wrong. Thank you. Not just headaches, screaming and stabbing. NS f/u 1 year.

This was very helpful. Thanks! As a stage 3 BC survivor, reading that she has lumps both in her breast and axilla had me very concerned. I hope whatever she has, it is benign.
