Do I have Parkinson's disease? My muscles twitch, my hips ache, I get dizzy often, I've been hunching over a lot, but I just got over the flu.

Do I have Parkinson's disease? My muscles twitch, my hips ache, I get dizzy often, I've been hunching over a lot, but I just got over the flu.

Doubtful: Parkinson's is exceedingly unlikely in a 16-year-old woman like yourself! Unless there's a very strong history of it in your family starting at a young age, you need not worry about this. The symptoms--rest tremor that gets better with movement, slowed movements, stiffness, and instability while standing--sounds different from what you report. If you're still concerned, you should see your doctor. ...Read more

Tremors in hands, weak legs, dizzy, some numbing/tingling in hands and feet, weight loss. Got MRI, no MS. Is it ALS? Parkinsons? It's not anxiety.

Tremors in hands, weak legs, dizzy, some numbing/tingling in hands and feet, weight loss. Got MRI, no MS. Is it ALS? Parkinsons? It's not anxiety.

Tremors: With these symptoms you need to see a good diagnostician and I would start with my family doctor. He will probably start with a complete blood panel and exclude all metabolic disease . If this is all normal that he will be able to send you to the appropiate specialist to treat your condition. Do not try to self diagnose. ...Read more

How can someone tell if their symptoms are anxiety related or from a real disease? Example: nausea, dizzy, off balance.

How can someone tell if their symptoms are anxiety related or from a real disease? Example: nausea, dizzy, off balance.

Those sound like: Anxiety. They are possibly present in real diseases, but not likely w/out other symptoms (or less visible signs). This is a loose general rule of thumb - no guarantee - but, if they pass on their own under different conditions - a phone call, a task, an amusing entertainment, etc., they are not likely to be disease. If you can't be relieved by circumstances, give it 1-2 days and call a Dr. Best! ...Read more

Long term dizziness (2 months). diangosis with vestibular disorder but now feeling acute nausea, vertigo, floating, hypoglycemic symptoms and facial spams?

Long term dizziness (2 months). diangosis with vestibular disorder but now feeling acute nausea, vertigo, floating, hypoglycemic symptoms and facial spams?

Vertigo: Definitely sounds vestibular. You might have just developed Meniere's disease of the inner ear with acute 'attacks.' More likely with ringing and hearing loss in one ear, but not necessarily. Or it may just be 'benign positional vertigo' on top of the general dizziness you've been having. See ENT for hearing test and balance testing, then treat accordingly. ...Read more
