Next, u r right u can not compare, even with those that do have shoulder pain
and had surgery
, of those some have had relief of pain
and others had an increase....as u r right many with Chiari do have other conditions related to Chiari and we do encourage u to have those ruled out b4 u consider surgery as they can affect how u feel and heal post op.
Syringomyelia, tethered cord, ICP.,POTS, sleep apnea, disk issues, scoliosis, ehlers-danlos....are a few.
