My Mood: Does anybody have clonus or chorea with their PD?

Default Does anybody have clonus or chorea with their PD?

Yesterday I had an appointment with the doctor that manages my diabetes. He is a wonderful, caring man and he is a DO, so he has a very extensive knowledge of the body. I showed him the funny jerking movements that I have in both of my hands. I mentioned that it looks a lot like clonus. He agreed, but also mentioned chorea. I have found a little bit of info about clonus with PD, but not much about chorea. I am looking for some info and if anybody has any suggestions about where I can learn more I would appreciate hearing about it. I told my DO that I have an appointment with my new MDS on November 24th. He had good things to say about him. He did say that if I don't get answers that I should not rule out Dr. Samii at the University of WA. I can hardly wait to see the new MDS. I have noticed some slowness in my right hand that hasn't been there in the past and it is a little concerning, especially along with the shaking in my hands and the bubbling sensations that I have across the left side of my back and in the big toe on my right foot. Strange stuff...I hope to get some answers for at least some of this stuff.

Here's a helpful link:

http://www.ninds.nih.gov/disorders/chorea/chorea.htm

It should be noted that this can be casued by levodopa. Chorea is often closely associated with Huntington's - I pray you do not have that form!

There is also some good into in this site....
