Huntington's?

After months of subtile jerking movements on my left side that have now progressed toquite frequent movements and other problems, I sought the help of a neurologist. He has ordered blood work,urine studies, and several EEG's.  The left side of my body is becoming weak. He mentioned Huntington's disease as a possbility.  What's your opinion? I am 51.
