Hi! I don't know that Chiari causes tremors, but I can say that I have them. I had them much more so prior to my decompression surgery, but I still get them occasionally now. I did find it odd that it seemed to happen when relaxing, though it also happened when picking up things.

Best wishes,
Annie

  HI, I get them as well and was told this is more from the EDS DX I have....not sure if Chiari can cause it  or if it is just a EDS thing....but Chiari can affect all aspects of the way we function so, I would imagine it is possible.'

DO rule out EDS too.

Hmm, Selma, that's a good question. I'm glad you posted here. I had a possible EDS DX when I was 15 but never went to the follow up (also didn't know I had the DX until reading the medical record last month). I forgot to bring it up with my NS on Wednesday! Ugh!

So, Mike, that's a good question. I would definitely bring it up with your doctor!
