Hi,My name is Claire. My dad; Eric died within six months of being diagnosed with MND after suffering from Bell's Pallsey in 1986. I was nine at the time and It has had a massive impact on my life. I decided to study genetics because of this and then rapidly talked myself into a state of denial. My father was an avid gardener and used herbicides and pesticides that have been banned a LONG time ago. David Niven tended his Lemon trees and sprayed them also, also had bells Pallsey on line TV and then MND and therefore when my beautiful, sporty, intelligent Dad died from this disease that made him shuffle, choke and waste away I quickly arrived a the conclusion that it could not be genetic in my case. I am now 37, have back spasms, a weak left hand WHICH HAPPENS TO BE MY WRITING HAND.my right hand has decided to take over.random muscle twitches and I am scared as hell. It could be down to stress?I am an identical twin. My sister has had back issues but has not discussed anything further, do you think I am being stupid?
