Thank you Dr Park for posting this in the Chiari forum...sleep apnea is one condition that many  chiarians do suffer from and many times it goes undx'd.

Case in point a little 9 yr old boy that had chiari surgery, but died afterward, his drs never checked him for sleep apnea....what a loss, a needless loss and we need more info.

SO thanks again : )

I will not be able to make it for this forum but I do have a question.  I am not sure if these are sign of sleep apnea so requesting so feed back. I was diagnosed with Chiari (states is mild and tonsils are low lying) and Syringomyelia.
I do snore and over the past few monts I have been awakend by a awful feeling as if my throat is closing and I can not breath.  I then keep swallowing as if pushing air down and this then causes me to puke.  The last episode frightened me as it seemed more severe then the other two times.  I put a call out to my neurologist and left a vm with his nurse with the details and rather I should be seen and have yet to hear back from anyone.  I tried calling back two days later and still have not heard back.  He told me that my chart is on the doctors desk with details of my call and along with my mri results,  I have yet to hear back.  
I guess I was just wondering if this was a sign of sleep apnea or possible complication from Chiari?
