Unknown: You have a very rare disorder that's been reported in less than 100 patients. It's associated with neurological conditions as well as GI ones with pathognomonic findings on mri. You would be best followed at an ultra specialized center where they are involved in research. You can find links on the web via the nlm - national library of medicine.
