    Neurosurgeon says he doesn’t think he should operate, I’m not so sure. If moving my head is causing me so many problems surely they should operate? But what would they actually do if they did? Is it life-changing? Can it paralyse me? I feel I want some relief from all this misery.
    What happens after surgery? It can worsen either side of where they operate he says, how long would I have before it did that? I feel I am dying slowly, so would it be worth the operation to give me awhile longer here? or too risky?
    They are going to do MRA to check blood flow head and neck.

    MRAs can be difficult to interpret. Also, if your symptoms occur with neck rotation, a CT angiogram with rotation can be more helpful.
