The initial diagnosis is being reconsidered and additional tests have been performed. Symptoms being manifested are atypical to the point where there seems to be much indecision on the part of the geneticists and neurologists. It's been seven weeks since my last tests and I have had no word. Are there no definitive tests to rule out this disease?
I am wondering if there might be a mimic syndrome at play here.
