Dr. James Glenn, cardiologist at Medical University of South Carolina, discusses the disorders associated with both the organ systems involving neurology and cardiology-- sometimes referred to as "neurocardiology". These disorders are common in individuals with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome and other connective tissue disorders, which are co-morbid with Chiari malformation and syringomyelia.

These disorders associated with neurocardiology can include: dysautonomia, other autonomic dysfunction, orthostatic intolerance, postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (or, POTS) and more. Common symptoms include syncope (fainting) and other issues related to the "involuntary" part of the brain. (2018)
