Hi there ~

I understand your concerns. Arnold Chiari malformation type I is a difficult condition to deal with and you might have needed surgery. However you seem to have made an informed choice not to do so. I also think that your taking ayurvedic treatment may be helpful. I would continue to do whatever you are doing as the symptoms are not getting worse, and with your belief in the system of medications I recommend that you keep taking the medications. I hope this helps with relieving your anxiety as well.

I hope this helps. Take care! Have a lovely day!
