I was diagnosed with central pontine myelinolysis by the Cleveland Clinic. I'm only two weeks out from the start of symptoms. I'm worried because I don't know the progression of this disease. I'm worried that I might still develop new issues. I'm concerned I might still go into a locked-in state. I want to know what are the statistics for this disease - how many people recover? How many people get worse? What's the time frame that they get worse in? Is there any treatment? Is there a support group? Are there any doctors who specialize in this type of neurological dysfunction? See answer
