spinal cord itself is the pathway of nerve conduction, and the spinal cord is a "bubble" in the middle of the spinal cord". If the spinal cord is empty, the nerve conduction pathway is subjected to the corresponding compression or destruction, and the nerve conduction abnormality occurs. Symptoms in patients with syringomyelia can be classified as early symptoms and late symptoms.
The common symptoms of
patients with syringomyelia were hand numbness, especially the numbness of the fingers, palms and other parts. With the development of the patient’s condition, the patient’s symptoms may be characterized by weakness of the fingers, and some patients with rapid development of symptoms may have a finger contracture.
in patients with more severe syringomyelia may develop pain in some part of the trunk and limbs. The symptoms of pain in patients with syringomyelia generally do not have a clear point of pain, neck and shoulders, shoulders and back, armpit, chest, limbs, etc..

patients with syringomyelia will not appear in a short time, but with the development of the disease gradually appear. For example, syringomyelia patients may be early symptoms of numbness in the hand appeared in the teens; at the age of more than and 20 for the development of symptoms and contracture of finger weakness; more than and 30 did not appear abnormal walking posture.
clinical, a lot of patients with syringomyelia due to the slow progress of disease symptoms and ignore the disease, wait until the symptoms have been more serious.
