Hi Kristin. I was diagnosed in Oct 2005, but symptoms began in 2003 with CNS issues such as loss of sensation over face, scalp and large parts of my body, vertigo, falls, stuttering, ticks, and tremmors. If you look at my various diagnoses you can see all my effected organs. I was healthy prior to 2003, so the progression has been rapid. It seemed like every few months I was diagnosed with another disease. I'm now having lung problems with shortness of breath so bad that I passed out during pulmonary function tests. I go back Monday for more tests. Anyway, I sure don't have near the problems you have, but I can kinda relate. I'm sending you lots of positive energy and (((hugs))). Let us know how you're doing!
