aphantasmia is a very rare word - not in any dictionaries.
Even google only gets two hits.

It looks like you mean 'aphantasia' - Aphantasia is the suggested name
for a condition where one does not possess a functioning mind's eye
and cannot visualize imagery.
but even this is a very new word, created in 2015.
