but just wanted to thank all of you for all the support that you have given to me over the past year. You have been such a strong support system always answering my questions and encouraging me to go on.

The diagnois I received was Mitochondiral Disease. A very rare disease that few people have.

I wish all of you the best of luck.

thanks again
Marti

At least you can name your problems now. I hope you are feeling reasonably well. I'm sure you are still absorbing the news and how to deal with it longterm. Have they put you on meds to help! Take care and please keep posting!

Hi Marti,

I am sorry to hear of your diagnosis but at least now you have a name for your symptoms.

I had never heard of this condition so I googled and came up with this link below. I can see that alot of the symptoms could be confused with more than one auto-immune condition. Thank goodness your doctor(s) had heard of this.

I hope you now get the support and treatment you need. Don't be a stranger and keep us posted on your progress.

Hugz, :hug:

Hi Marti :hugbetter: It's been a long road for you and you have had so much testing, I'm glad we were able to encourage you to go on.

Now you have a name and a clearer path to follow. It certainly does sound like it was a confusing thing to diagnose, but I'm so glad they got there in the end. Who ended up diagnosing you in the end...........just curious in case we should happen to come across anyone else with this condition.

I found a group online that has contacts for Mitochondrial Disease so I hope in some small way this can help you:
