“Uchitel apparently suffers from Arnold–Chiari malformation, which consists of a malformation of the brain that leads to tissue and fluid in the spinal canal.
“While it can cause a range of debilitating symptoms, Uchitel has mainly been dealing with back pain for years. After a series of misdiagnoses and failed treatments, it’s now been discovered that she suffers from this rare ailment,” said the report.
Amazingly, the “birth defect” was not detected for 40 years. The report said there’s only 50 per cent chances that the, “decompressive surgery will be successful in eliminating Uchitel’s symptoms.”
Uchitel has a three-year-old daughter Wyatt Lily and has not posted anything about her condition on social media.
