    Yes, symptoms can vary but often people with Chiari malformations get headaches, nausea, tinnitus, can have balance problems, visual problems, aches and pains, pins and needles, and more. Some more serious than others. There is alot of info on line if you take a look. My son suffers particularly with the headaches, nausea and aches and pains like you describe. Crap, isn't it!?

    I wish you luck. Other people on this forum may have more to share.

    best wishes
