Well the spine mrt does not really sound what u would call normal.there are so many termini u have to get explained by a specialist.sometimes chiarian have more things going on and u cannot all blame it on chiari as such.the chest pain is there always?does her heart rate increase standing up?cheast pain with increasing heart rate could be sign for pots...just an idea...i am not a doctor

  I have to agree with irislita as this could indicate POTS if ur BP changes with positional changes, and it could also indicate GERD...many with Chiari have this issue as well.

Post op even more so as the drugs used for surgery trigger it even more.

It may not be chiari but in a round about way u can see a connection..like the  
6 degrees of Kevin Bacon, I think we can also have a 6 degrees to chiari.

  Do get this checked and post an update
