Need an Upright MRI done
Organized by: Amber Taylor
I have what's called a Chiari Malformation. It has to do with the Cerebellum being a little over grown, compressed against the skull, comes out of the base of the skull and blocks the spinal fluid and creates a syrinx, which is like a cyst. I am now 21, and I've had my Chiari since I was about 15-16 years old. The symptoms that come along with it, mine as gotten worse as I've gotten older, i can't enjoy being active as much without getting light headed, numb throughout my left side and etc.. I happen to come from a less unfortunate family and my insurance doesn't cover out of state medical bills. I need an Upright MRI and the closest one is in Deerfield, IL. Because there's none in Michigan. I already got accepted to see a neurosurgeon at UofM with my insurance after waiting for a year. All I need now is an up to date MRI, since my last MRI was 2 years ago and it was a laying down MRI. I need an Upright MRI that will have better imaging of my Chiari Malformation. I'd be so blessed, overly joyed and very thankful to anyone and everyone who helps me please!
