Rare disorder, unique friendship and the call to action today on the CBS 58 News at 4

Two women formed a friendship online while search for answers to a rare diagnosis.

"I went in with shoulder pain, then back pain," recalls Lisa Przybyla of  Franklin. "I was told I was fine and sent home with pain pills and muscle relaxers."

Turns out a fb friend she met had the same diagnosis. But for as rare as their disease is, it turns out they were living next door to each other.

They both had the same struggle to figure out exactly what was wrong.

"So, I just kept going back in," Tammi Washington of Brookfield remembered. "Finally, I sat in the emergency room and refused to leave."

CBS 58 News brings these two women together at 4 p.m. in hopes that others out there won't suffer in silence.
