Your mother in law symptoms are very similar to yours I am correct,On your mother recent MRI scan did they described cysts larger than 10 millimeters in the area of pineal and pitutiary glands.
hi, its CORKMOM, im female!! no my mil didnt get anything back from scans only that they where all normal.
please anyone know what this could be???
My boss at work began having similar symptoms about a year ago. He is 46 years old and has always been healthy and active. He went through a number of test and finally has been diagnosed with Parkinsons. I don't mean to scare you but it could be a possibility. He has a very staggered/shuffling walk and constantly falling and bumping into things. He is now on medication to improve his condition. He got diagnosed at Emory in Atlanta.
I am going to be 61 in a month or so. I have been experiencing similar symptoms as your mother for the past few months. I have also been dealing with hand tremors if I do anything that requires fine motor skills like cursive writing or even occasionally cutting my food. I also have vocal cord dysphonia that the ENT and speech therapist think may be neurological in origin. Fortunately I don't have any head aches or pain with symptoms.
I am just now going the neurologist route. I was thinking that maybe age factors into the condition of your mother and me. If I find any thing out from my visit to the neurologist, I'll pass it on.
Excuse me, I meant your mother in law.
hi, thankyou for your comment. i hope you find the answers you are looking for and wish you luck in finding out what is wrong. my mil has no other symptoms other than the unbalanced walking, so we think its unlikely to be anything like parkinsons ,nuerological etc. its baffled nuerologists who have seen her and scanned her as nothing showed up which is good news, but on the other hand she is no closer to finding out what is the cause. on appearence she is a very normal looking woman and then she starts walking and can appear to look slightly drunk, if you know what i mean. we joke and tell her to drink some more than her usual half glass of wine once or twice a wk and she might walk straight then!! but on the serious side, she is praying that the tests she is due to undergo this wk will show something and finally diagnos what is the cause of her symptom. thanks once again, lisa
Good morning. I hope you can find out the cause of her symptoms. Once again though, my boss had no other symptoms either. Just the unsteady-drunken walk.
Neurologists here, also ruled out Parkinsons, but specialists at Emory said it was. I'm just glad he is on medication now. Good luck with your MIL.
