Rick’s Tipping Point: Worsening Symptoms Led to Testing
Meet Rick, living with hATTR amyloidosis.
My hands are going numb. Why do my feet hurt? All these different symptoms started piling up. Now I have diarrhea. I can barely hold my fishing rod. I thought I was just getting old. My tipping point? When my symptoms got worse.
My brother told me to get tested for hereditary ATTR (hATTR) amyloidosis. It’s an inherited multi-symptom condition that affects people in different ways. No two people experience it the same way, even members of the same family.
If your doctor suspects hATTR amyloidosis, you can be tested and it may be managed. Don’t put it off. Once you have the right diagnosis, you and your doctor can discuss how best to manage this condition together.
