Signs & Symptoms
FOP is usually found during childhood. Signs of FOP do vary, but inflamed areas, as well as a misshapen spine, fingers, and toes are the most common signs.
A promising treatment has not been found but many medicines are available to reduce pain. Trauma, or anything dangerous, should be avoided since it could cause flare-ups of the bone and result in more bone growth. Surgery, injections, and anyone who has the flu or has recently be avoided, as these could also result in more bone growth.
