Several years ago a friend's father was exibiting signs of Parkinson's so she began researching symptoms and treatment on the Internet. She discovered those same symptoms were also related to Fragile X Syndrome which she had never heard of. As she read more about Fragile X and how it affects families she realized that her extended family had many symptoms of Fragile X including autistic children. The result of her 'stumbling upon' this information caused her to seek testing for herself and her children. When some tested positive as Fragile X carriers most of her siblings elected to be tested, also. It was a life-changing discovery. She sent me a link to this article which I am passing on with the hope it will help others to become familiar with this syndrome.
