Huntington's disease or chorea (HD) is an incurable neurodegenerative genetic disorder that typically manifests itself first in middle age. It is the most common genetic cause of abnormal involuntary writhing movements called chorea. There is no cure for HD, but there are treatments available to reduce the severity of some of its symptoms.

I am a registered nurse and I have a question regarding Huntington Chorea. My neighbor has just been diagnosed with the disease and she is 67 years old. She had mild symptoms of jerky movements several years ago but they are now more pronounced. I have read articles that this disease is usually diagnosed around the age of 40-50. I was a surgical oncology nurse and have minimal experience with HD patients,Thank you for answering my questions. E mail address: YYYY@YYYY

I had gall bladder removal and umbilical hernia repair on June 2nd I am now feeling a mild muscle spasms around my naval. This started approximately two days ago. There was no traumatic incident prior to it (for example, I wasn t lifting anything heavy or doing anything that would possible damage the area). It s not painful, and the sensation resembles what one would feel when the eye lid twitches or another mild involuntary muscle twitch. Is this normal? Is it a sign that the stitches are healing inside?
