Health Hint, but not an Encouraging One  
Soooo... apparently, my brother has been having similar health issues to the ones I have been fighting the last few years. Pretty much same age at onset, similar constellation of issues, except that he gets a bonus of diabetes. Whatever it is, there is apparently a genetic link. Awesome.

Ewww, you win Diabetes + mysterious health issues is worse than just mysterious health issues. I hope you both figure out what is necessary to solve the issues and enjoy a fully healthy life again.

Whoever is researching this mystery symdrome might be interested to know about this apparent genetic link. You and your brother could be immortalized in medical journals.

True. Sadly, I don't have the guy's name and the MD I was seeing at the University has either retired or (possibly more likely) died, and he is no longer listed in the system.

Well, at least there is a clue, but sorry it's still a mystery.

That... really sucks.

I mean, I'm glad you're not alone. I don't know your brother, but I'd rather he get the risky experimental treatments than you. And there has to be some comfort in shared experience.

Still- genetic stuff sucks. Especially when they name it after you. :(
