ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
After waking up in bed with a insect bite on my leg, symptoms started gradually. Initially fever and chills, followed by upper respiratory condition, the slurred speech, loss of balance, and finally inability to walk. Visited my Doctor, six Neurologists, two Hematologists, three Hospitals with the final diagnosis motor neuron disease, PLS. Now I have been in a nursing home for two and a half years. In a matter of a few years I went from working ten hours a day, camping and traveling, to looking out of the window by my bed.
