Hello,

The symptoms are most likely to suggest the possibility of Parkinson’s disease. It can happen without a family history, so it has nothing to do with your bloodline.

Consult a neurologist at the earliest and start treatment. Most of the symptoms can be managed with timely treatment.

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

Take care

Regards,
Dr Shinas Hussain, General & Family Physician
