  • I'm 53 years old and have a very unusual sickness. Since I was 16 years old, I have been sick for several periods of the year. I was diagnosed with Kleine Levin syndrome four years ago, and the symptoms are very much like what other patients have described. Is there anyone else that has been sick with Kleine Levin syndrome for so long? I also received the diagnosis of myotonic dystrophy type 2 five years ago. Can Kleine Levin syndrome and myotonic dystrophy type 2 have anything to do with each other?
