Ischemia of the left basal ganglia
I am a healthy 53 year old male. In the last two weeks I have had what could be interpreted as the beginning signs of Parkinson's disease: tingling in the extremeties, muscle weakness in the deltoids, biceps, and pectorali major, as well as some occasional weakness in the left wrist and right ankle. An MRI revealed a small ischemia in the left basal ganglia. Because Parkinson's is a disease that affects the nerves leading into the basal ganglia, and because the basal ganglia are associated in some way with muscle control, I wondered if an ischemia in the left basal ganglia would possibly cause the symptoms listed above. Any help would be much appreciated.

Thank you.
