Comment from: Nancy, 75 or over Female (Patient) Published: June 14

I have Parkinsons-like symptoms. I had Encephalitis at age 9. I was diagnosed with Peripheral Neuropathy about 16 years ago. I wonder whether I have Post-Encephalitis syndrome and whether these diseases are inter-related in any way. I read somewhere that Post-Encephalitis lead to clinical Parkinson's. My symptoms also seem to mirror MS and ALS.
