Hi everyone, I just joined the site today. I was just diagnosed with Stiff Person Syndrome. I no that it is 1 in million that will have it and I am scared all the time. 15 years ago while deployed to Pakistan, I started getting stiffness and could not walk and very afraid for someone to startled me or call my name. Anything that I have no control over scare’s me including having me in the spot light. The end result will be to fall like a domino and I had no control how to fall because my body is stff. I just retired from the military and did not want to but I did it to protect the young soldiers that depend on me to get them home from war. I could not do this so I left. For 15 years the military doctors were pushing anxiety pills and just like week after a test, I came up positive for SPS. I have no idea what;s next, I am hurting about my career and scared for my life. Any advice will help.
