A 34-year-old member asked:
Is a plasma exchange the best treatment for neuromytonia (isaacs syndrome)?

Not usually: The inherited forms do not typically respond to plasma exchange. If you are the only person in the family who has the disorder, you may benefit from plasma exchange. Symptoms usually come back not long after the intervention.
