My mother and I share a history of low thyroid, muscle weakness, bowel and bladder problems, cancer, but different cancer. I had a work-up a while ago, I could see from my insurance they did genetic testing and other testing I was never allowed to see or retrieve.

I have been diagnosed with pallido ponto nigral degeneration which is caused by an N279K mutation on exon 10, chromosome 17.
