Hello dear and welcome to the medhelp forum. Deposition of excessive iron in basal ganglia can lead to symptoms related to movement disorders. It can be passed on genetically, cause movement disorders like involuntary jerking, uncoordinated movements, increased tension in muscles, and sometimes difficult swallowing and speech. A gradual decline in thinking and reasoning may be seen along with loss of inhibitions. Consult a neurologist for detailed assessment and appropriate management. Wishing you all the best.
