Hi babykins,
I can understand how frightened and overwhelmed you must feel right now. Here is the link to the Mayo Clinic website:
Not knowing anything about this condition myself, I read the information and thought that it might be what you are searching for.
Your physician is your resource to answer any of your questions, explain your prognosis and prescribe appropriate treatment. Keep us posted.
