I hope they check for Myasthenia Gravis (MG) / Eaton-Lambert-Syndrome at the same time. This could also be one of the other ABCD1 markers.
Apologies if this is a dumb question but what are "ABCD1 markers" and how do they relate to fluoroquinolone antibiotics (Levaquin, Cipro, etc) and/or to Lambert Eaton Myasthenia Syndrome (LEMS)?
The very first trigger of my illness was a neurotoxic reaction to Levaquin (and in my case, I've never taken Cipro) but Levaquin & Cipro are basically identical in the context of being floxed or having "fluoroquinolone toxicity syndrome".
I went from basically perfect health to being floxed in early 2010 (followed by a series of other events over the next few years) and ended up with four diagnoses, one of them being Lambert Eaton Syndrome (LEMS). So this thread is all of extreme interest to me (even though I might not understand all of the science behind it
Edited to add: I am assuming it is a genetic test that links with both being floxed and possibly having MG or LEMS? Is this correct? Also, would it lead to a specific treatment or is it more for academic knowledge?
