Just a quick note to say hi! I saw your post about Dr. Rosner. He did 5 procedures on me in January 2001; I believed he saved my life. I had Chiari 0 -- no herniation. My cerebellar tonsils were wrapped around my brain stem was compressed severely. I was bed bound, couldn't sit up or stand up w/o fainting, along with about 100 symptoms. I did improve after the surgery, but I now know I have Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (a connective tissue disorder that causes Chiari) & Tethered Cord Syndrome--which also causes Chiari. I will have surgery soon for TCS to release the spinal cord from being pulled on 24/7. This may be your problem. TCS and EDS were not known about until 2005. I'd like to give you reliable websites & info to help you.
