I apologize in advance for any grammatical mistakes. Dictation isn’t always my friend. Hello! Just stumbled upon this website and hope to find someone like me. My name is Laura: 26 years old and live in North Carolina. Eight months ago, I began to lose feeling in my toes, feet, leg above the knee, and from my elbow down. I was admitted to the hospital for over one month, as well as appointments at top rated institutions. My current diagnosis is systemic symmetric sensorimotor subacute axonal polyneuropathy. I experience extreme soreness as if I ran a marathon. My life is playing the violin and I am no longer able to do that. I’ve never been heartbroken like this before. Hoping to find someone who understands and relates.
