I have been spending most of my time in center city Philadelphia lately.  Not because I'm checking out the newest and hottest restaurants or gallery openings.  Nope.  What I have been doing is checking out some of the new hospital buildings and radiology equipment.  Because I'm cool like that.  
I managed to squeeze a ton of my recurring doctor appointments and tests in before the end of the year (while my deductible is met, of course).  Which means I have the 3 weeks before Christmas  packed full of charts, needles, monitors, and the like.  I also have to get an arthrogram on my shoulder to find out what is wrong with it.  With all the radiology tests I've had in the past few years, I believe this last one may put me over the edge.  I won't need a Christmas tree this year--I will be glowing just like one.  Merry Christmas to me!  And Happy Holidays to you!

I'd love to know if you find any good Chiari, EDS, pseudotumor cerebri specialists you'd like to refer to - I'm in DE and seeing Baltimore dr's but we're in between surgeries right now so it would be interesting to get more opinions.

Hello! For anything brain, neck, and chiari malformation related, I suggest Dr. Henderson at Metropolitan. He definitely seems to have the best reputation for treating those of us with connective tissue disorders. I've heard mixed reviews re: the Chiari Institute in Great Neck, NY, but many people seem to like Dr. Rekate there. I hope this helps!
