Parkinson's Disease

The brain

03/21/2007

Question:

FI am not sure where to start, but about 20 years ago,I am almost 30 now, I started having problems with my learning. My eyesight got worse and worse, and through the years my memory has been getting worse. Now I find it difficult to speak correctly, and I have severe anxiety. I`ve had pressure in my head for about seven years, and I have pain in my head on the right side that keeps getting worse. I am really worried about this. Should I get this checked out

Answer:

I sounds as if you have several issues.  The fact that it has been going on for "20 years" supports that it may not be a serious neurological disorder.  Often, anxiety can produce the symptoms that are described.  The forum is not able to address all of these issues.  I recommend a thorough workup by a neurologist.
