Can anyone (with reliable sources) tell me more about this disease or where I can find more. I already looked it up on wikipedia and every site that comes up when you search in yahoo and google. I can t find much...please help. I want to know what I'm dealing with here. I also was told it's progress slowly (it affects 42 chrosomes only), but there is no cure or treatment. What exercises are good for it?
