What is worse, MS or parkinson's?

Not fair to compare. Any neurological disease can take an immense tole, and both can result in substantial disability. Ms affects younger people, and therefore, can rob future potential. But parkinson's can destroy aging and retirement. Since we cannot choose, and are at risk due to genetic susceptibility, we can only adapt to our future destinies.

Have you ward of anyone having both MS and Parkinson's?

Possible. Unlikely that the two would be associated, as very different pathological processes, but ms lesions in the basal ganglia, or even cerebellum could mimic the signs of parkinson's perhaps. I have never had a pt who possesses both disorders at one time. Read more...

What to do if I feel shaky all over body. Can this be als, Parkinson's or ms?

Tremors? Shaking over the body can be due to tremors, such as familial essential tremors, but may be seen in parkinson's, wilson's, and secondary to hyperthyroidism. Many medicines can also cause tremors such as asthma meds, depakote, amphetamines, etc. But an isolated tremor does not define als, ms or parkinson's unless other signs are present. Read more...
Also consider- You should consider these diagnoses instead- essential tremor, hyperthyroidism, and medication side effect. These are much more commonly the cause of a symptom like yours. Parkinsons normally causes symptoms of slow movement and rigidity, and a tremor at rest. MS normally causes weakness, numbness of difficulty with vision. ALS normally causes painless weakness and significant weight loss. Read more...

Plz need a brief idea of when will there be a cure for ALS, MS, Alzihmiers, Parkinson's disease how far we are from cure plzzz any reply or predictions?

Can't predict. These things take loads of money, research and time to impact. All these diseases are major, so for now, treatment is palliative, educational, and where available, progress-slowing (LOTS of Tx for this)--but not cures. Meanwhile, get some support, through groups or therapy and keep an eye on the research journals for each disease. Read more...
