How did a retired school teacher solve a medical mystery that stumped twenty-two doctors, neurologists, and cardiologists for nearly a decade? First step: take notes.
When Judith Maxwell’s body began failing her, she started keeping a record in the hope that somewhere inside she’d find the answer. In the first of a three-part series, we dive into those notes, and find out how a retired school teacher developed a medical condition that kept doctors guessing for close to a decade.
The clues of Judith’s mystery come into sharp relief when she encounters a story that bears a striking resemblance to her own.
In the final episode, Judith and a team of activists, healthcare professionals, and pharmacists, reflect on the medical system that allowed Judith’s condition to continue unabated for so long, while trying to figure out what comes next.
