Jim’s Rant For The Day Stiff Persons Disease.

Most of what Google shows for it is dated from 2021 to today.

However, I saw a reference article going back to 1956:

“Stiff person syndrome (SPS) is a rare disorder of the central nervous system characterized by rigidity and stimulus triggered painful muscle spasms of predominantly axial and proximal limb muscles. It was first described in 1956 by Frederick Moersch and Henry Woltman based on a case series of 14 patients with progressive fluctuating tightness of the spinal, abdominal, and thigh muscles. This condition was formerly named stiff-man syndrome and is also known as Moersch-Woltman Syndrome.”

The article goes on to say ". . . SPS may coexist with other autoimmune disorders. . . "

This may or may not be a rebuttal of what Dr. Charlie Ward suggested in today's podcast about Celine Dion.
