How old are most of the people that have this?  My mom never had any proble,s and then at 60 was told she had this.  However they say her symptoms don't match having a Chiari and that she is to old.  However as I read some of the symptoms people have listed I see her suffer with several of them too,  thanks so much!

  Hi...u can have chiari ur whole life and not develop severe symptoms until later in life due to a MVA, a fall, a cough...some develop symptoms earlier in life...

I was 48  when dx'd and had surgery 2 months b4 my 50th birthday....so she is not too old to have Chiari....

FInd a Chiari specialist from our list of Drs...use the list to research as it is not a referral.....http://www.medhelp.org/health_pages/list?cid=186

If u have ne other questions please ask : )
