I have been dealing with chiari for about three years now and I had surgery in December of 2015, 3 months after I was diagnosed. About a week and a half ago my symptoms hit me harder than they ever had ( after surgery, anyways). I lost feeling my legs from the knee down and I was tremoring uncontrollably. The back of head was tingling as well. But something new happened…
This time, for the first time, my breathing was severely impacted. My chest was hurting so bad, I had never felt that kind of chest pain. I have tachycardia but that is totally different then what I was going through. I was at the ER and they did absolutely nothing. I had an EKG done the next day and it was abnormal but the cardiologist said it was nothing to worry about. So my question to you all is, has anything like this ever happened to you? Have you had severe trouble breathing.
It has been 9 days since I was in the hospital and my breathing is still out of wack and my chest hurts. If anyone has ever had this happen, please respond.
The only medical reason I brought this to a chiari support page is due to the fact that your brain stem control your breathing, heart rate, BP, Ect . Could it be impacted?
