Hello everyone. I’m 54 years old and I weigh 148 lbs. I was diagnosed with Chiari in 1995. I’m having trouble breathing, swallowing and talking. I slur my speech and catch myself sighing between sentences just so I can breathe. I’m very forgetful and even though I’m not overweight, I get tire easily. I use to be very active but this past year has been the worst. Neurologist say that I’m not a candidate for surgery so what do I do, where do I go, who can I turn to. Please help!
