Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXXXXX
Thanks for being in follow-up.

I have gone through the video clip which you uploaded.It indeed is 'oromandibulo-buccal dyskinesia'.

First and foremost thing,is to ensure that his blood sugar is well controlled.High blood sugar can result in such movement abnormalities.

Further,the following investigations need to be done-
Kidney function tests
Serum electrolytes
MRI Brain
ESR/CRP/ANA
Thyroid function tests
Blood smear for acanthocytes

Besides,old age can also result in such symptoms.If due to ageing process,then it comes under the group of 'senile chorea'.

Meanwhile, treatment as suggested by Dr XXXXXXX XXXXXXX patidar appears to be fine and may continue.

Hope that I have answered your query.If you have any further questions,I shall be glad to answer them,else please close the thread,rate it and write a review.

Hi XXXXXXX
Thanks for being in follow-up.


'Cure' means 'eradication' of the disease.So,whether this is curable or not will depend upon,what turns up to be the cause of the condition.
However,hopefully medicines will bring improvement.
