Hi i have had an mri scan. I had it before the rheumi diagnosed fibro in fact i had 2 cos i freaked the first time and had to go back and be sedated. It was done mainly to rule out ms but it did find i had a large prolapsed disc in my neck. I think it was an orthopedic surgeon who did it. As for chiari malformation ive never heard of it sorry huni but im very interested to learn more cos im really nosy lol.
