My story is not unusual as it begins with multiple falls. Fortunately, none wre serious enough to cause and fractures or severe damage. After being misdiagnosed at the Cleveland Clinic in Florida, my neighbor and personal physician suggsted going to the Mayo Clinic here in Florida. It is there that a muscle biopsy revealed IBM. I honestly would not wish this condition on anyone. However, if some high powered individual, such as Bill Gates, were to have this condition perhaps more research for a cure would be found. Would appreciate anyone with any info on any medication that have been helpful to them, to please share this info.
