Name: Anne Location: Iowa - USA E-mail: email@example.com Comments: My 44 year-old sister noticed 3 years ago that her left cheek had begun to shrivel, and she started having painful spasms under her left jaw. After a battery of tests, including an MRI, at our local hospital, she was referred to the Mayo Clinic. She received word from there yesterday that she has Parry-Romberg. I've noticed from the comments on this site that many noticed symptoms at an early age. I'm wondering if there are others, like my sister, who began experiencing symptoms in their 30s, 40s, etc. I'm so grateful for this connection. Thank you to the founders!

Name: Nicky Location: NY E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org Comments: Hi to everyone who's lucky enough to have found this website like I have. My name is Nicky and I was born in the Caribbean. From the age of 6 I notice the left side of my face was becoming less chubby than the other. Yrs later it progressed slowly even causing me to lose the hair on that side of my hairline. I'm now 34 and just finding out that's why I had so many migraines and had so many panic attacks. I went to a specialist 10yrs ago who was clueless and insisted it was just a little pigmentation (it's darker in the sunken area). He couldn't even tell that area was sunken until I pressed both sides of my face and the left side had no bounce to it. I now live in the US and was suprised when the doctors here had no idea what it was either. I couldn't afford to go searching (doctor to doctor) for answers but as it turned out I got answers cheaper than I expected ~ through this website. Anyway I have long gotten over my insecurities and am able to smile like I did when I was 5 again. I haven't been "diagnosed" and have to hope of making it better but thanks to this site I now KNOW what it is that's haunted me all these yrs. That in itself has helped me live again!

Name: Kimberly Location: Virginia E-mail: email@example.com Comments: My daughter is 9 years old and was just diagnosed with Parry-Rombery Syndrome. It has taken us 4 years to find a dr. who could tell us what was going on with her. She started at age 5 with loss of pigment on the left half of her head. They simply told us that is was segmental vitiligo. Then 2 years later her left ear started changing shape and seemed to not be growing like the other. Now at almoast age 10 her ear is paper thin and is half the size of the other. We have been told that this could continue to change her face or not. This waiting game is not any fun. Bless all of you for what you have faced and are still facing.

Name: Lisa Location: SLC, Utah E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org Comments: My son Martin was Diagnosed with Linear Scleroderma at the age of 7. Since then a deep indentation has occured on his forehead and the line has continued down his face.His lower lip is partially affected along with his eyelid.An Mri shows a line completely thru his Cranium and it appears to be attacking his brain.It has been suggested that I research Romberg's. I wrote to a Specialist online and he suggested that I start researching Rombergs as some atrophy is becoming apparent. I have no support, I get no answers from Dr's only a wait and see until it goes into remission and to watch for neurological symptoms. Any emails or contact would be very helpful to me. It would be nice to know that there are other people out there dealing with a chronic disease that few people understand. It would also be nice to find someone for my son to talk to He is now 10 and is being teased and bullied at school. He needs people with similar experiances to talk with. Thank you Lisa and Martin in SLC Utah

Name: Miranda Location: Evergreen, Colorado E-mail: email@example.com Comments: I have suffered from Romberg's disease. The first visible signs appeared in the 1st grade. Even in elementary school, I knew something was terribly wrong--facial atrophy, migraines, panic attacks, ete. My parents basically ignored it and never took me to Dr. until high school. A lot of good that did. Anyway. I was 34 when a cranial Dr. in Cleveland, Oh. looked at me and said it's something like Romberg's, but he wasn't sure. He had read about it a long time ago, but couldn't really remember anything. I tried to find info on it but couldn't for years. Then one day I looked on the internet and BOOM--there it was. Everyone looks like me. I am now 44 and still struggle with feeling like a freak. It doesn't give me comfort to know that other people have to live with this disfiguring disease. But, I am glad you are here for us.

Name: tricia Location: ME E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org Comments: Hello everyone. My name is Tricia and I am from Maine. I was diagnosed last year with Rombergs disease after noticing for about 1 year that the right side of my face was changing. I was devistated at first and ended up being sent to Bostons Mass General hospital because no doctors in Maine knew much about the disease. Once in Bostons hospital they sent me to Philidelphia and there finally a Dr. could help me. I guess I have a very minor case and I am very lucky. I know have a surgery set up for the end of March and the Dr. will put my own tissue back where I have none. This will either need to be done again or if my disease is done I will never have to fdo this again. I am very glad that I found this site and wish everyone else the same luck. Any e-mails are welcome. I wouold love to talk to someone else with this disease. Wishing you all the best of luck. Tricia

Name: James Location: Minnesota E-mail: email@example.com Comments: Hello everyone. It seems I find myself thinking of my brother, Terry Burau every spring and wander over to your site to see how everyone is. I'm happy to see so many of you are new here and finding this unique but wonderful family. I must admit, it makes me sad to think of all they years gone by since we lost Terry. In the years since he died, I had many achievements I would like to have shared with him. I became a police officer, had my first book published, started my own company. All the things you want to call your brother and share with. These are huge milestones and I feel a loss that he wasn't here to see them. Then I find this site again and read all the new members and expressions of gratitude for having found this place. It's then that I realize Terry is still with us all in his own way. And the fact that he has directly and indirectly helped so many people makes him feel that much closer when I miss him. Thank you for that gift. I wish you all the very best. Jim

I really didn't think that anyone had the same condition as me, and that so many people have had similiar experiences. I am 30yrs old and was officially diagnosed with Romberg's about three years ago, even though I have been affected by the condition since I was three. I have other things 'wrong' with my body but I find the facial stuff harder to deal with. A visit to a neurologist today prompted me to find out more about this condition and thats how I found this site. It has been a great help that I'm not alone.
