I am not surprised that this article does not metion Dercums Disease.. a syndrome that some here may have. very little is known about the disease and because of that it is very difficult to get diagnosed. I have 70+ lipomas, many painful, and am quite delibiltated, however it is virtually impossible to get any medical assistance. My doctor and the hospital specialists (endocrinologist and neurologist) have all diagnosed me with dercums but freely admit they cannot find any treatment available under the NHS.
I am now unable to work full time but as the disease is not recognised I cannot get any support from social services or the Department of work and pensions.
I suggest if anyone is suffering the symptons of not only multiple lipomas but also pain, memory fog, possible weight gain and tiredness they research Dercums and return to their GP as we need to get as much info out on this condition as possible
