Median Arcuate Ligament Syndrome is a condition that affects anywhere from 7.5 million to 18 million people worldwide. However, most medical professionals have never heard of this diagnosis, so patients often suffer for years before finding the source of their pain. We aim to change that.

  • "When you hear hoofbeats, think of horses not zebras".

MALS Support Community seeks to inform patients and medical professionals about this condition in an effort to decrease the time to diagnosis. We hope that, by raising awareness, we will be able to reduce the number of patients who are misdiagnosed with chronic abdominal pain or eating disorders. We believe every patient deserves a chance at a healthier life, and we hope to provide answers for those who are searching.


We are MALS patients, care takers, mothers, fathers, sisters and brothers who struggled to find resources and answers to the MALS mysteries. Through our journey we have decided to provide a safe place to share information in the hopes of helping others find the correct diagnosis faster.


We are strictly an online community and can be reached through the forum or by emailing us at info@malssupport.com
