Diaganosis first: Chorea is actually a symptom. First, you need to figure out what is causing your chorea. A visit to a neurologist would be prudent. Common causes include genetic disease such as huntington's disease or secondary to a streptococcal infection + fever. Better to evaluate the underlying cause first.
