Sandra’s Secret Weapon Against A Very Scary Disease
My mother had been coming to Dr Justin for only a few weeks when she suggested I come in and get an exam in his office. I suffer from Huntington’s Disease. This is a debilitating brain disorder which affects a person’s ability to think, move or even talk. This has affected my quality of life.
I encountered many problems due to Huntington’s Disease including the inability to hold my head still. Even something as simple as sitting in a chair is difficult for me because my body shakes and wobbles. I also experience difficulty walking. My doctors at MUSC have me on prescription drugs but I continued to have problems.
Dr Justin said he could help me. I can already see and feel improvement.
- I can keep my head still
- I don’t wobble when I sit down
- I stand better and my back feels better
- I used to stay in bed most days. Now I am up and going places and doing things
- I can do more things with my grandchildren!
At my last checkup at MUSC, my doctor was impressed. He said, “Whatever it is that you are doing, keep it up!”
