In brief: Off and on attacks
Signs and symptoms of familial mediterranean fever usually begin during childhood.
In fact, 90 percent of all people initially diagnosed with fmf are younger than 20 years old. The signs and symptoms, which are collectively referred to as attacks, often occur with little warning. Generally, the attacks last two to three days.

In brief: Compliance
You'll be given medication, probably Colchicine for starters.
It is very important to take this as directed even if you feel well. It goes a long way to preventing the dread complication, amyloidosis.
