Were you looking for information about Syringomyelia? Seringomielia is a common misspelling of syringomyelia.
People who have syringomyelia develop a cyst within their spinal cord, which will eventually destroy the spinal cord. In most cases, this condition develops during fetal development. However, it can also result from other conditions, such as meningitis, a tumor, or trauma. Syringomyelia symptoms usually begin in young adulthood. These symptoms tend to develop slowly, although sudden onset may occur with coughing or straining. Possible symptoms can include headaches, loss of ability to feel hot or cold (especially in the hands), and chronic severe pain.
