Can chiari cause arrithymia?

Ahh... It just scince chiari I've had a really fast hr (130bpm) and used to be around 70bpm and I awalys feel like I'm skipping a beat, but they did a ECG and everything was fine Rythem wise, but it was only for like 3 minuets so it wouldn't exactly tell them much. And in my surgery apparently my b
P was like all over the place but yeah...

  The other thing it could be is if u have acid reflux it can affect the vagus nerve which can also affect ur heart like that.....

But do get tested for POTS....they do a tilt table test.
