If your partner has family history of neurological degenerative diseases, I recommend to make an appointment with a neurologist and have a complete clinical, imaging, electromyography and lab test evaluation, to rule out any possible degenerative central or nerve disease. Once that these diseases are rule out, then possibly we have to look at the stress or anxiety as the potential causing factors .
