The reoccurrence of pain, weakness, respiratory dysfunction, and other symptoms similar to their previous condition is often puzzling to the individuals that are experiencing them. Because the condition was not frequently seen by physicians, and the symptoms are shared in part by many other medical conditions, health care practitioners were seldom acquainted with this condition.
