    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.

    Side effects?

    Hi I'm 13 and I get headaches a lot and my pediatrician is trying to get me to see a neurologist. And she ordered a mri so the don't have to do one when I go there.

    Neurofibromatosis
