Videos of Periodic Paralysis Attacks and Diagnostic Tests
This section contains videos of attacks of various subtypes of periodic paralysis and/or diagnostic procedures specific to periodic paralysis. We are in the process of gathering footage of attacks. This is an on-going project and is a bit slow-going, so we apologize for the dearth of footage at this time (December 27, 2009).

The Balancing Act
Primary Periodic Paralysis (PPP) is a rare condition that causes attacks that affect your muscles, resulting in extreme muscle weakness or temporary paralysis, most often with an inability to stand independently, or even sit up. Primary periodic paralysis is not just one condition, but a group of inherited neuromuscular disorders. Although this condition is very rare, it affects about 5,000 to 6,000 individuals in the US or ~3 in every 200,000 people.
