Had brain MRI for constellation of symptoms, came back normal. To me looks like increased CSF on scan, poss cerebellar ectopia (chiari) easy to miss?

In brief: Possibly

There are specific criteria that radiologists use to assess for cerebellar tonsillar ectopia.
There are many normal variants of brain anatomy that may look abnormal to the untrained observer. If you are concerned about that specific issue, your doctor that referred you for the MRI can have the radiologist review the exam.
