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.

They can do a genetics test for HD via a simple blood draw.  Do not let a genetics counselor talk you out of it.  That will be the most direct answer to your question.
