    I understood @strategist question to be directed not at the diagnosis, but at how the term paralysis was being employed in the label Periodic Paralysis. If I was right, then PP likely would be correct provided it's a channelopathy - despite no paralysis being evident. PP is an overarching term(s) that encompasses a spectrum of symptoms and manifestations that range from muscle weakness to paralysis to cardiomyopathy to overt physical abnormalities etc.
