  • I have McLeod neuroacanthocytosis syndrome. I developed symptoms around age 14. What is the current treatment? I would also be interested in finding people doing research on this condition. I have ticks but I also have muscles that become tight and I believe this has something to do with the movements my body does without control. Is this typical? I also have complex seizures and grand mal seizures from this illness. Is this common? Also, my left side of my body only seems to be affected by loss of feeling or it has intense pain. I also cannot feel hot and cold in most of my body. Click here for answer
