This blog is designed to educate the world about Periodic Paralysis a rare, inherited, hard to diagnose, debilitating and cruel metabolic disorder. I have a variant of this condition and my life is filled with constant challenges as I attempt to manage my symptoms to stay alive. My husband and I are co-founders of the Periodic Paralysis Network, Inc. This blog is an extension of our educational and support network at www.periodicparalysisnetwork.com .
PP is so very complex..... It is confusing.....there are different forms...the cause of the symptoms and paralysis are due to different processes. Some of the symptoms are the same and some are different. Most members join us with an idea of the form they have. But confusion comes if we have other medical conditions. Then the symptoms can be different or worse. Also the triggers that set our symptoms into motion can make the symptoms different. Drugs can add to the confusion and are our worst triggers.
