Brief Answer:
Not too old to be treated.

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thanks for using HCM.

I have read your question and understand your concerns.

First is necessary a craniocervical MRI to evaluate the degree of Chiari malformation and its associated possible complications (syringomyelia, hydrocephalus etc.)

If imaging findings correlate with your symptoms, decompression of posterior fossa surgically is necessary, unless there are major contradications to surgery.

Definitely you are not too old to be treated about Chiari malformation.

Consider consulting with a Neurosurgeon about your concerns.

Hope I helped you.

Take care.
