Parkinsons runs in my mothers side of the family, and I have tremors, and my gait I guess, I actually went to this one neurologist for Sleep Apnea, he was suppose to be the Sleep Apnea specialist! I had been seeing his cohort the other neurologist for my neuro problems. Anyway he just took over my case completely, and after doing a bunch of test he came up with that, I didn't agree with him and told him so, but he insisted he wanted me to go on the meds to at least see if they helped, I never seen that they did any thing one way or the other, but he claimed it was helping me! It was after he got sick and I had to go to another Sleep Apnea specialist that I found out he was mistreating me for my sleep apnea, and then I started having second thoughts about
the other stuff he had been treating me for. Next thing I know he is gone, no one will say what happened to him, and they got two new neurologist in one of them is who I am seeing now!
Your husband needs to be really carefull about
Dx especially from ailments associated with desert Storm, no one wants to admit to anything when it comes to GI's and the problems they are experiencing from the war! I would be leery about
just any thing especially if it is coming from the miltary or the VA.
Good Luck to You
