  • Is Parkinson's Inherited?

    The shakiness and constant movement I've experienced for years I thought was from the caffeine or my anxiety and nerves. I have been dx'd w/COPD recently and my balance isn't great because of O² data are low, or so I thought. None of my Drs have been able to explain my extremely painful contractors I experience in my feet and hands. After describing all of my symptoms, Parkinson's is the 1st diagnosis listed. Its description summary was 100% if my issues. My great grandmother at age....

    Hello and good afternoon, I have been researching the medical benefits that cannabis holds for a variety of degenerative disorders, auto immune, and physiological symptoms. Cannabis is a universal medicine that can treat a wide range of symptoms and now it has been reported that ALS patients are finding more success using this medicine.

    Weird Symtoms When Driving??

    When I drive my carotids tighten/throb and soon after it starts I feel lightheaded. To the point that I haven't been able to even drive to work many days. I tried to push through it once and almost passed out and started shaking. I've had normal MRI and CT scans of the head. Its definitely not anxiety. After I stop driving I feel confused for a while. I've also had ear popping lately and feel strange after eating a big meal...not sure if it's all related.

    Numbness, muscle twitching, and no diagnosis? Read this.

    I felt compelled to write this a year and a half after first experiencing neurological issues because #1, it seems that a lot of folks who have similar undiagnosed conditions simply "disappear" online (hopefully that means they've gotten better), and #2, I am still alive after a year and a half, so my goal is to give hope to anyone who is experiencing similar symptoms and have not had any luck with a diagnosis. First things first. If you have not seen any neurologists, stop reading....

    Random things when writing

    My husband has started to experience random things appearing when he writes or types. For example when he was filling out paperwork at a doctor's appointment, he noticed he had written two random characters in front of his address. Later that same day, he noticed a text he apparently sent but it was random words and he doesn't remember typing it. I have tried to search for these symptoms and have not had any luck locating anything. Has anyone else experienced this or have an idea what may....
