    Can mylelomalacia symptoms travel upstream?

    I know that myelomalacia symptoms can travel downstream - if someone has myelomalacia in their cervical region, then they can experience symptoms in their legs due to downstream symptoms. However, can someone experience symptoms upstream? I have suspected myelomalacia in my thoracic area but experience symptoms (burning and tingling) in my neck, face, arms, and hands in addition to my legs, back, and ribs.

    As far as I know, no, the symptoms would not travel up the spinal tract. Impingement in the thoracic area can lead to thoracic outlet syndrome. I assume there was some sort of compression on the cord that caused the myelomalacia, perhaps that also caused some sort of thoracic impingement.
