I've recently been diagnosised with chiari malformation and my symptoms are worse and getting new symptoms as well. So I be worried?

Need more info. I assume it was chiari I which is an incidental finding on MRI at base of the brain. This can be a normal variant. If associated with more serious issues such as syrinx, radiculopathy, breathing or swallowing difficulties, then decompressive surgery may be necessary. Something else may be causing your symptoms.
Vague question. Your question is too vague to offer specific advice. Chiari I is fairly common & often does not require surgery. However, you have hydrocephalus or a syrinx, some intervention may be necessary. Best advice: see a neurosurgeon to go over your MRI & provide a good physical exam. S/he will be in best position to offer specific advice/treatment. More info here: http://surgeonwriter. Com/hydrolog/
