I am new to this forum - found it through searching for the Discovery Channel "Mystery Diagnosis." Thank you friends for having this forum. Blessings to all.
My husband has been having health deterioration and after a battery of tests there is NO ONE that can tell us what is going on...
He is only 50 yo with a history of heart attack at 39 yo with excellent recovery and no noticeable residual nor problems with minimal follow-up.
I have faith that someone would come up with some brainstorming, Divine Enlightment so that we can find out what is going on, so he can be treated. Thank you very much for any light you send our way :)
