Is this condition hereditary? I am 66 and my mother

Is this condition hereditary? I am 66 and my mother recently passed. She had Alzheimer's.
Can a GP give a diagnosis?
I have some of the symptoms but I am my adult son's caregiver. He is intellectually disabled, has autism,
and has recently been diagnosed with schizophrenia. The past years have been extremely stressful.
Thank you

My grandfather had, and my mother (89 years old) has, and I occasionally now have slight hand tremors, generally lasting less than a minute--and usually intensified if I focus on it. No other symptoms. I know some of the causes, which don t seem to fit. Can this be a hereditary condition?

Hello, My boyfriend is 37 years old, he has OCD and stammers. He takes rivotril to reduce his anxiety as there is no medication that treats OCD directly.
