PPI Founder Deb Great in cooperation with the HKPP Listserv conducted and published surveys of Periodic Paralysis patients. These surveys helped to expand knowledge and drive research in many areas. The survey regarding pain in Periodic Paralysis is just one example, as it was widely believed that the PPs were painless disorders. This survey was followed within months by another survey conducted and published by a well-known PP researcher, leading to credibility towards patients reporting pain. With your help, we can continue using this great resource tool.
