Looking for a good movement specialist in Las Vegas.  I have tremors when reaching up.  I have left side weakness, lesion on right side of brain. ?

Neurological Eval.: In my opinion, you need a good neurological evaluation. How long have you had your symptoms? If they are new, and especially if they come and go, I think you should go to the ER. If they come and go, then that sounds like transient ischemic attacks, which are basically warning signs for a stroke. ...Read more
