Patient: Hi I am a 53 yr old female sudden onset low center back pain with pain down front of left thigh that started 7 weeks ago. It is a constant pain and seems worse at night. I have never had back pain before this.
Doctor: Hi.Read and understood the past history of Chiari decompression in 2007.You are 53/Female and had sudden onset of low center back pain with pain down front of left thigh for the last 7 weeks.This is indicative of some spinal problem.I would advise you to get in consultation of a Neurosurgeon, get MRI of the brain and the whole spine as there is a history of Chiari Malformation surgery in the past.Once the diagnosis is made, treatment can be planned according to the findings.Fibromyalgia may just add on to the problems.Hope this helps you.
