HI Guys!

Please see my url noted below for information on the following illnesses:
Behcet's Syndrome
Familial Mediterranean Fever
Machado Joseph's Disease
Sarcoidosis
Thalassemia

All of these illnesses are being found among families where you would not expect it to be found. IF you have ancestry from NC/VA/KY/TN/WV for the last 200+years and a mysterious illness(es) that has been MIS-DIAGNOSED as everything under the sun, one or more of these illnesses need to be eliminated as the cause.

I have Familial Mediterranean Fever. Before I found out abt this illness, I had been given 17 DIFFERENT diagnoses, all of which were SYMPTOMS of my illness. I was taking 21 different medications each day, most several times a day and I was for all intents and purposes bedridden.

I now take 5 medications and I feel better than I have in years. I had no idea I had any Mediterranean ancestry. I have since found both ARAB and JEWISH input into my family lines that was not known before. But anyone w/ any ancestry from Mediterranean areas may have these illnesses.

Please see my urls for more information and you can write to me from there if you want further info:
