Posted on Wed, 23 Jul 2014
Question: I was diagnosed with PICK's disease 5 years ago, had no symptoms at all. I had a double stroke 3 years ago and since then have had trouble walking, walk with a cane, but my legs are very stiff. Are these symptoms of PICK's - I thought I was misdiagnosed since I didn't have any symptoms for so long after I was diagnosed. What would be your diagnosis?

Thanks for query on Healthcare..

Hi.. Iam Dr.Kingson (Family Physician) , as per your history Your Doctor diagnosed PICKS disease , as there are no symptoms it was mistaken for PICKS disease .
Stroke which occurred 3years ago is due to cerebro vascular disease of transient ischimic attack which caused focal spasticity as year advances it leads to contractures(permanent dismobility of joints) .

Yours medications are to reduce stiffness which could cause weakness/lethargy.

Stiffness is not due to PICKS Disease, my probable diagnosis is CVA with focal involvement mainly due to cerebral ischemic attack.

Thanks for your query.
