I have just had an MRI of my neck due to a neck and shoulder injury and it has come back saying i have low lying cerebellar tonsils 9mm below the level of the foramen magnum, consistent with chiari 1 malformation.

My Dr never called to give me the results so I dont really know what this is or anything.

I have been getting severe headaches/migraines on and off for the past year, and for the last month, i have been getting dizzy going from lying down to standing and vice verca. The last week, i have also had a cold, not bad but along with this, a severe headache and very severe dizziness, to the point of passing out once, and having to lie down a few times.

Could all this be related?

advice from anyone who knows about any of this stuff is greatly appreciated.
