Following Helen Stephens, a mum-of-three who is believed to suffer from one of the rarest neurological conditions in the world – stiff person syndrome (SPS). Only one in a million people are diagnosed with this shocking condition, which can cause sufferers' muscles to become as stiff as a rock. Triggered by noise, stress, extreme temperature and even food allergies, attacks see Helen stiffen up and become unable to move as her muscles turn rigid and spasm. Helen feels as though her muscles are ripping, tearing and swelling inside her body. These attacks are becoming more and more frequent and Helen is now believed to be in the last and most life-threatening stage of the condition. Without a clear diagnosis, she cannot get the treatment she so desperately needs. Could advances in medical technology and a pioneering new test allow her to dream of a better future?
