An orthopedist who spent months in isolation in his office after being diagnosed with the debilitating neurodegenerative disorder said it’s “critical” for doctors to convince patients that their condition is real before they’re sent to a hospital.
“It’s very, very important that we are able to convince people that we’re dealing with a real medical condition,” Dr. William K. Daley, a neurologist at Harvard Medical School and author of the book, “Neurodiversity: A Primer on How to Create and Implement Care for Patients With Multiple Sclerosis,” told Axios in an interview.
“And that they’re not just going to have to deal with the side effects.”
The disorder causes a person to lose the ability to move or speak normally, and it is often mistaken for Parkinson’s disease, another degenerative disease caused by a loss of dopamine and other neurotransmitters.
It’s unclear how many people with the condition are actually suffering from the condition, though there are plenty of patients who have been in treatment for decades.
It has been linked to a variety of neurological disorders, including Alzheimer’s, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s and schizophrenia.
It was first identified in the 1950s in a study of military veterans, but the disease is still a difficult and difficult condition to treat.
A number of countries have begun to provide more funding for research into treating it, but there’s still no cure.
Daley is an expert on the disease and was one of several experts who met with President Donald Trump in the Oval Office last month, in what he described as a “very successful” meeting.
Dali said Trump and his staff have been supportive of his efforts to try to make a change in policy, but he noted that the president “doesn’t understand” the condition.
“I don’t think he understands it,” Daley said of Trump.
“He thinks it’s just a physical thing.
I think he thinks it affects him.”
Daley said he also felt that Trump did not know enough about the disease to understand the severity of the situation, and that it was unclear whether he would be willing to make the necessary changes to help patients get better.
“He doesn’t understand it.
He thinks it can be cured.
He doesn’t want to do anything about it.
That’s why I feel like he needs to be brought in to help,” Daly said.
Dali said that after Trump’s meeting with Daley last week, he sent a letter to the president outlining his efforts, which included contacting all the top medical and political figures in the country, including House Speaker Paul Ryan.
Dale, who was among the first patients diagnosed with Trump syndrome in 2017, said he has been able to keep his composure since being isolated for nearly two months.
He has spent his time trying to get to know his colleagues, but Daley acknowledged that he has difficulty communicating in public.
“There’s a lot of things that I’m not comfortable with, and I’m very nervous,” Dali told Axos.
“So that’s why it’s so important for me to be able to share my thoughts and my experiences with him.”
In addition to his treatment in a private office, Daley is also using his time to work on a novel treatment for the disorder, which is called NeuroDiversity.
He said it could be ready for a trial as early as next year.
While there’s no cure for the condition itself, it’s believed to affect as many as one in three people, according to the National Institutes of Health.
Many patients with the disease can live for years without being able to move at all, but they can’t be cured of their condition.
The treatment has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration, which allows the company to test its drugs on animals before they can be marketed for humans.
Daly says the results are promising, and he expects the drug to be approved within a year.
In the meantime, he said, the treatments are working well for him, even though he still can’t speak or walk.
He’s also working on finding a way to help people who are paralyzed or have other medical conditions, like diabetes, who are unable to walk.
“What I’ve found is that it’s a very difficult condition for people to live without walking,” Dalia said.
“The way to get around it is to get into a wheelchair.
And the wheelchair is incredibly expensive.
So it’s hard to get people in there.”
Dali’s office was evacuated during the inauguration and a large part of the city is now closed to pedestrians and people.
The rest of the nation is now under a lockdown, but Trump’s tweet about the hospital is not the first time he’s made reference to the threat posed by the disorder.
