I need help desperately! I was diagnosed in 2008 with a chiari malformation. I am experiencing new symptoms and can't get a doctor to listen to me. I am experiencing jaw pain, hyper-salivating, vision problems, balance problems, also ear pain with no ear infection. No throat pain, no cough. Also, I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis many years ago but blood tests come back negative. I was told that 50% of arthritis patients come back negative on blood tests. I have morning stiffness, severe joint pain, joint swelling. This includes my hands, hips, knees, and toes. Could all this pain and new symptoms be a part of this chiari malformation?
