I have several rare conditions that (I feel) must point to a single syndrome or cause. However, my doctors can't figure it out. They include:
Complement C8 deficiency
Vitamin D deficiency
Severe nerve pain in arms & legs
Obstructive hydrocephalus
Hierschprung's Disease
Cone-Rod Dystrophy
Muscle twitching---new symptom

  • Hirschsprung's Disease can be associated with hydrocephalus, can also cause malnutrition ... The consequence is a lack of vitamin D, it will cause muscle twitching ... just my theory

  • Thanks for replying...... I did not know that there was a correlation between Hirschprung's Disease and hydrocephalus. As far as I know, I'm the only person in my family with these disorders. I've been on prescription Vitamin D 50,000mg once per week for several months, but the muscle twitching persists. My latest lab work showed an extremely high rnp antibody results. I know that it points to an autoimmune problem, but which one???????? There are hundreds of them!~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Alisha

  • Perhaps that's here finally disease that explains everything, and I think it's Lupus. Motility disorders may be associated with lupus also neutropenia...
