  Hi and welcome to the Chiari forum.

Chiari never goes away, u will always have it, surgery is to slow progression and restore CSF flow...and hopefully reduce symptoms.

It is very possible u have some symptoms due to going to school the stress of it or over time u had scar tissue develop that may be impeding CSF flow again.....

Also there r related conditions, so not knowing what u have been doing since surgery and going back to school, it could be it is just more then u r use to, or  there is an underlying issue.

I would suggest u get a MRI....when was ur last one?
