    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

    Aturo updated the condition TIA (Transient Ischemic Attack)

    • 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.

    Progresssive MS is hitting hard, the TIA's are having a blast with my head, and the Huntingtons "Chorea", has a very tight grip on my Back and Lungs. I'm in Hospice care now this is a home based service for me.
