Faces of MdDS

My resilience saved me. Yours can save you. 💙

My onset was spontaneous instead of motion induced. In fact, I was diagnosed shortly after a surgical procedure. Some doctors’ attitudes and an experience at the ER almost broke me. But I didn’t lose hope, got back up on my feet, and regained my strength. I encourage you to see your progress and strength as I did. My resilience saved me. Yours can save you. 💙 Together, let’s continue advocating for ourselves and a cure because I truly believe that one exists.

The Facts of MdDS

  • It is typically triggered by motion: cars, trains, airplanes, ships, boats, and even fast elevators.
  • The average person sees 20+ doctors before getting a diagnosis.
  • Many people are suffering from MdDS and don’t know that they have it. They are undiagnosed.
  • The scale of the problem is not matched by research dollars.

The MdDS phenomenon is the natural result of the human brain adapting to environmental motion and is thus the quintessential neurological disorder.
