CADASIL

Postby JTSA » Mon Nov 09, 2015 3:21 am

CADASIL stands for Cerebral Autosomal Dominant Arteriopathy with Sub-Cortical Infarcts and Leukoencephalopathies. It is not as rare as once thought, and has been estimated to be 40% of multiple sclerosis diagnoses (remittant/recurrent).

While it appears to involve mental illmess issues, it is a result of mutiple micro-bleed strokes, some "silent" strokes. I want to raise awareness of this condition found around the globe, as it is genetic. There is no known treatment or cure but those wishing to procreate can use in-vitro fertilization to take it out of their bloodline so that future generations do not have to suffer this devastating condition.

I want to know how doctors and therapists can distinguish between mental health disorders and neuroprogressive disorders. This is due to having been misdiagnosed and mistreated by multiple types of medical/psychological disorders... and honestly -- why nobody apologizes when discovery is made of the misdiagnosis/mistreatment.
