Know What is stiff person syndrome?
Stiff man or woman syndrome is characterized
by muscle tension and spasms
increased sensitivity to stimuli, including sound and light, and
emotional distress that can cause muscle spasms,
according to the National Institute of
Neurological Diseases and Stroke.
“It is often associated with muscle spasms,
which can be quite severe
These can cause falls, severe pain and great disability,” said Dr. Emile Sami Moukheiber
“Falls from intense spasms are not unusual. Those spasms can be
induced by startles, excessive emotions, bloodless weather.”
Those spasms can be strong enough to fracture a bone,
and any fall can cause excessive damage.
Dion said in her video that the spasms affect
"every aspect" of her daily life
