@romans528 I know you’re very anxious about also getting Parkinson’s disease and upset that your brother has it. From what I have read, Parkinson’s isn’t inherited . This article explains some of it.
Your best bet to to have a talk with your doctor. Did your parents, or their parents, have Parkinson’s?
No probably not a good make sure you exercise eat a Mediterranean diet and make sure you have good stomach health if you don’t go to gastrologist. Very important
