Ever since her first grandchild Megan was born, Mrs Richmond has had to remain emotionally reserved.

She said: ‘I want to just sweep her up into my arms and say I love you. But I am afraid it could be dangerous for both of us.’

It could trigger an episode and I could collapse on the floor, injuring Megan and myself. ‘It is quite bizarre to think I can’t tell my family I love them without falling over.’

Same also happens with Kelly Timson also a mother of two boys. Kelly collapses any time she expresses strong emotions such as laughter,anger,or crying.  Often , she finds herself collapsed in a heap on the floor some times she injures herself during such falls and once she nearly suffocated after landing face down on the sofa.

Now she fears she may have passed the illness onto her young son.
