I don't know if this applies here, but I am a child of a Vietnam Vet. who passed away in 2007. highly exposed to agent orange, during his service, he was injured and sent home on leave, (and I was conceived) My symptoms had already started by we just chopped em up of over doing, also had cervical fusion in 2002, possibility it was that etc. lots of thoughts then when my father had passed the tremors started becoming more consistent. started asking primary dr questions, and he would tell me, no I was to young, the symptoms were not consistent, etc. my husband and I started our own research, and found that my dr. didn't know what he was talkin about, we switched primary dr. and he got the ball rolling all in short this has takin sense 2005, going from on Neuro dr to next and so on, when we switched primary dr. we were sent back to my first neuro surgeon, in turned said you need to see this specialist we work with, and all this being said to say this, when just speaking with the specialist two days ago, he informed me that there is evidence or findings (however you want to word it) that these different toxins and pestisides used or is using are likely to aide in Parkinson's, my sister whom is seven years younger than I is now having same symptoms I was having years past. Dr. said (two days ago) that I should go to V.A. and see what can be done. I really don't know what is or not fact, just digging around trying to find answers. hope this Helps. Have you tried to go talk to some one at V. A. ?
