Are you, or anyone you know, affected by hydromyelia?
« on: November 15, 2017, 12:39:49 pm »
Dear Forum members,

The Brain & Spine Foundation was recently contacted by an individual affected hydromyelia looking to find people with the same condition to share experiences.

According the US National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, "hydromyelia refers to an abnormal widening of the central canal of the spinal cord that creates a cavity in which cerebrospinal fluid (commonly known as spinal fluid) can accumulate.  As spinal fluid builds up, it may put abnormal pressure on the spinal cord and damage nerve cells and their connections."

If you or anyone you know is affected by this condition, do get in touch.

Many thanks,
Aaron
