Does anyone have experience with Huntingtons?
So I developed facial tics starting 3 years ago and in recent weeks experienced new facial symptoms that were even scarier. Went to a neuro who was very thorough with his examinations and very good at listening to me. He said facial tics in adulthood can have happen and no cause found, or can be caused by certain conditions.
He sent me for a brain MRI (last one I had was 4 years ago) and it was 100% clear - great except that I don't think Huntington's, my biggest (and most irrational) fear shows up on a scan. And I don't want to google as last time I googled that disease I discovered that not only facial movement but also a number of other symptoms I've battled with for years showed up. And I don't want to scare myself more.
I asked my husband to check for me if the scan would show the disease and he won't.
I did mention it to the neuro and he said not Huntingtons (I have no family history but it can happen spontaneously) but didn't really focus on it, moved on to MS etc.
Now I sit with no MS or tumour on the scan (VERY happy about that) but still wondering about the Huntingtons.
