My dad had JHD, should I see a doctor?TJ344344 people shared this0 comments

Q. My dad developed juvenile hd in high school at 35 years old over three years ago. Currently I am 17 and I have slurred speech, sometimes even I can’t understand what I’m saying, my family constantly asks me to repeat myself, over and over… do you think I’m showing enough signs to go see a doctor or is it just me being paranoid?
