STIFF PERSON SYNDROME (SPS)

I was diagnosed with Stiff Person Syndrome in February 2016 after four months of MRIs, CT scans and X-rays. It is an incurable autoimmune disease affecting all muscles and the nervous system.

Incidence is one in a million worldwide. The result of constant spasms is unrelenting pain, muscle stiffness,rigidity, anxiety and eventual disability. Diagnosis was confirmed by a specific blood test ordered by my Neurologist.
