What causes problem in moving legs?

Hi, I am a 58 year old female. Back in Aug,2011 I started having problems with imbalance, vigro. I have no dizzness. I have had two cat scans, MRI, spinal tap and multiple blood donations all with a negative result. My problem is I think I have a short circuit with the nerves in my back not telling my legs what to do. Thus, I stand still and move back and forth but cannot make my legs move. My husband has to push me to get started. Any idea as I am really becoming distrubed. Thanks

Cardiologist 's  Response
Hello,

Your symptoms could be related to possible Parkinson Syndrome. Anyway, vertigo is not typical of this disorder. For this reason, I would recommend consulting with a neurologist after 6 months for a physical exam in order to investigate for possible progression of your symptoms.

I would also recommend checking vitamin B12 plasma levels for possible deficiency and vitamin E plasma levels.

Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Ilir Sharka, Cardiologist
