Barabra, thank you so much for replying. Sorry I’m a bit slow, do you think it could possibly be chiari 0 then? I haven’t seen the radiographer’s report myself but my GP and Rheumy said that it was “normal” and did not show the cause of my symptoms and neither of them mentioned the white dot. It’s strange because it shows up in slice 8 and smaller in 9 so I would have thought that it was not a “blip” with the equipment. I also have constant pain around c4 too. I have attached another pic, c4 looks to be abnormal but again no comment on it. I’m off to neurology next but I have a feeling its a waste of time and that I should just go to Professor Grahames’ team direct. It will be interesting to see how things would look in an upright mri. Thank you soooo much for having a look at this Barbara. I hit a brick wall after being told the mri was normal. It’s so frustrating but has become the norm now.
