Could I Have Huntingtons Chorea?


Q: Since I was young I've heard my mother's concerns about a genetic defect called Huntingtons which my paternal grandmother had died from. My father doesn't live near us anymore and hasn't admitted to any symptoms. He did, however, express that it,"skips generations." Is this Myth of Fact?
I have been experiencing some invonentary muscular and limb spasms, "twiches." While in a sitting position i sometimes feel as though I have tremors along my thighs and calves. I have had moments where I was awake, but felt like I was "sleep falling," which I might relate to narcolepsy, but is always like a millisecond. sometimes in my periferal vision I believe I see insectets and sometimes dark items look like they're moving.
