Hello.

Sorry if my questions were stupid or something.

I read that scoliosis can be associated with chiari malformation.

I'm suffering from 1. hand tremor, 2. frequent hiccups, 3. frequent headache (often mild though), 4. dizziness, and 5. blurred vision.

And you know I have scoliosis.

Can this be a sign of chiari malformation?


I'm going to talk to a doctor about that but i wonder what you think.

Did you find anything out from the doctor yet? My daughter has scoliosis and had surgery 6 years ago. She has been getting migraines for a few years and has just started seeing a neurologist for them. She came across chiari malformation when she put in some of her symptoms. The doctor thinks her severe allergies and family history of migraines are her problem, but she feels they are overlooking some of her symptoms.
