I am Nancy Sparks Morrison and I am a Melungeon descendant. I am
enthusiastic about genealogy and that is how I found my Melungeon connection.
I also found that I had an inherited illness called
Familial Mediterranean Fever. This illness is thought to be rare in the
U.S but I think it is simply being misdiagnosed as everything under the
Fibromyalgia and rheumatic-type joint pains are two of the major symptoms in this illness along with a whole lot more.
You can read my story with Familial Mediterranean Fever PLUS a lot of medical documentation and information on the Familial Mediterranean Fever blog.
