Neck: Yes. Myelomalacia can cause all of the above symptoms if in the cervical spine region. At upper levels would be less likely to cause arm symptoms than mid to lower levels. Headache would be more common with upper levels. Seeing physician whether neurosurgeon or neurologist would be recommended for anyone with an MRI showing myelomalacia.
