Sometimes there are no symptoms. In
you probably do not need to be concerned. Sometimes a
Chiari Malformation is just a note in your Medical record,
and you don't need to worry about it.
The major symptoms are headaches and
Most commonly the other symptoms confirmed
to be Chiari related are:
dizziness, vertigo, loss of balance visual disturbances,
sleep apnea, ringing in the ears, difficulty swallowing, impaired fine
motor skills, chronic fatigue, muscle weakness and tingling or numbness in the
hands and feet.
Due to the complexity of symptoms, CM1
patients are often
misdiagnosed by non-experts.
