“Before my Fabry disease diagnosis, I was in the dark. I was constantly living in fear of my worsening symptoms. Without a diagnosis, I felt trapped and helpless. Finally, I was so frustrated by all the dead ends that I took matters into my own hands. I began working with my doctor to understand my symptoms and help determine my diagnosis.”
