Click to read: Mystery of Victorian-era poet's illness deciphered after 150 years
The symptoms she described in her diary are textbook Familial Hypokalemic Periodic Paralysis, just like my symptoms are. I find it incredibly sad that she went undiagnosed and untreated, eventually dying in her husband's arms. But how amazing that someone has acknowledged and given a name to this woman's illness after 150 years. This definitely puts HKPP on the historical map. What a find!!!
