Interesting medical mystery. Horrifying to think others might go through the same thing and be misdiagnosed.

Perfectly well written book about an interesting subject that I found somewhat boring.

I bought this because the author was coming to an event at my local bookstore (which I planned to attend but missed due to circumstances) but I might have bought it anyway. The book is about a mysterious neurological illness that overtakes a young woman in her 20s. The ailment is initially mistaken for a psychological issue and the course of her treatment and the discovery of what is ultimately wrong reads much like an episode of Mystery Diagnosis.

I don't know what bothered me about the book. I guess there is too much disparity between the medical stuff (which I like) and the sappy emotional stuff (which I found annoying).
