My son is Spina Bifida and has Chiari type 2. He is 12 years old.
His right arm was always stiff but lately is getting worse: stiffer.
He also is behaving like "in slow motion". He takes a lot of time for eating, drinking and sleeps more. He seems to be loosing focus and concentration and in general is less pro-active.
Are this symptoms related to Chiari (including srm stiffness) or syringomyelia or both?
