    Charcot Marie Tooth unknown progression or abnormality

    I've inherited Charcot Marie Tooth and started getting symptoms at 20 with a normal progression for the following ten years. Within the last five months I've had a sudden spike in symptoms that isn't at the normal rate of CMT progression which I feel is outside CMT conditions and unrelated. Everything has affected the right side of my body. Started with numbing of the right side of my face accompanied by slurred speech, later leading to drooling and difficulty swallowing. I have low mobility....

    Interactions between Remicade and Cannabis

    Hello, my mother has a rare form of sarcoidosis in her spine. The virus has greatly weakened her ability to use her legs and get around, along with causing great pain.

    Misdiagnosed

    I was diagnosed with primary progressive multiple sclerosis, PPMS. Every symptom I’ve had is from my waist down, loss of mobility, urinary problem, GI problems and numbness with tingling sensations. The problem is I have no lesions. None on my brain and none in my CNS. I feel it could be something else. After reading the article on webmd I’m really convinced I’m one of those people the doctor who wrote the article is talking about. I would love to speak with her. Has anyone ever heard of this?

    Diagnosis

    Hi there I have been having symptons for a couple of years now and the doctors can't seem to figure out exactly what I have. It first started in 2016 when I got a headache that felt like it was cracking my head open, just after the headache started I battled to look at any lights. This got increasingly worse and I started getting a fever. I was exhausted and could not stay awake. About 3 hours later I went to the doctor. They admitted me into hospital straight away suspecting meningitis. I was....
