I know what you are talking about. I had the same story myself couple years ago. I was lucky because my general practitioner is very intelligent and fine lady. She helps me a lot. Basic thing that you need is to find the person doctor/therapeutics, which will guide you through the disease and will help you. Therapy is almost like for other diseases. You will have electro stimulation, medicines, physical support, massages etc.
