She initiated this important conversation in our Inspire Support Community.

“What strikes me is all the variants on CMT symptoms, other than

the ‘usual’ ones [for instance the discussion elsewhere about

digestive problems]. So I thought I’d start a list and ask you all to

add to it. Perhaps this will help us all in talking to doctors. So

here’s a list of things I’ve been told by my doctors are caused by my CMT.”

The response has been overwhelming!

When HNF partnered with the Inspire Community, our mission was to encourage conversations just like this one.
