    I Have what is called Huntingtons Ballistic Chorea: a @aturo2@yahoo.cokmlong with Progressive Multiple Sclero
    This is something that has scared everyone I have encountered when they see it in action. The muscle spasms get so intense that they have thrown me off my feet and even out of my wheelchair. I had one during a visit with another Pastor one day and it tossed me onto the floor.

    Huntingtons also effect the Pulminanry System. BE SURE TO HAVE YOUR FLU AND
    Pneumonia shot.

    • First symptom:
    • Diagnosis:

    For me, was learning that with TIA's they can strike with no warning. WEAR a bracelet, or necklace letting people know that you have TIA's. Because of mine, I'm never left alone. I could crash to the floor become injured somehow or by accident start a fire in the kitchen while cooking. All because I Pass out cold. anytime, anywhere. Keep someone near you that understands your medical condition and needs.
