I recently had a cervical spine MRI for what we thought was a pinched nerve, causing numbness in my left arm, the results shown a Chiari 1 Malformation 5.6mm and bulging dics C5 & C6. I've also have fibroymyalgia. I went to see my neurologist today and he said that 5.6mm is too small to be considered a Chiari 1. He wants me to do physical therapy with traction. I'm very confused about this whole thing, anyone agree with me and think I should see a neurologist who specializes in Chiari:confused:
