Can chiari cause arrithymia?

Just wondering can chiari mess with your Brain stem and cause an irregular heart beat or palpitations?

  Yes, and it can cause related conditions like POTS, that can have an effect on the heart too...as well as Ehlers-Danlos it is also a related condition and some types of EDS r heart related....so this is y I always say get these all ruled out b4 surgery so u know as it can affect how u feel and heal post op...can even affect how u r during surgery too....

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.
