X-ray shows cervical spine lordosis. Having severe headaches, neckpain, dizziness, difficulty swallowing, blurred vision. Suggestions?

Hi I have been to doctor recently and have had a CT wich states: The cerebellar tonsils appear to be at the level of the foramen magnum suggesting a Chiari one malformation verses cerebellar tonsillar ectopia . This could be confirmed with MRI. I had an X-Ray today which states:Straightening of the usual cervical spine lordosis which may be secondary to muscle spasm . I have been having severe headaches lasting for several days at a time; neck pain; dizziness; difficulty swallowing; trouble thinking; blurred or double vision. I had an MRI today to find out what is really wrong, but I am so worried. Please give me some expert advice.

Thanks for the query,

I understand your problem

I feel that your problems are related to chiari malformation. All your symptoms can be explained by this problem. MRI will clarify the extent of the problem. You may review this with your neurosurgeon regarding the management once MRI reports are available. Stay relaxed until then.

Hope this clarifies
