My husband has problems with his nervous system. It started with the pain in chest, abdomen, limbs and back then he starts to feel numbness in the muscles. After the examination it is confirmed that he has porphyria. But I thought it is skin disease. My cousin had it. Can somebody explain?

Porphyria is the group of different disorders. This has made the confusion. Your cousin probably had the cutaneous porphyria which is skin disease with symptoms like blisters, itching and swelling of the skin exposed to the sun. Your husband has the acute porphyria which affects nervous system and can cause paralysis, personality changes or mental disorders.
