Dear doctor, Until now the medical literature as far as I can see does not clearly define the functions that are restored or worsened or left as they are by the DBS. To make it more clear we know ıt suppresses tremor and rigidity in the joints and involuntary movements by decreasing the daily intake of medication. but does it influence in positive or negative sense the symptoms such as cheek biting, drooling, eating the tong, dry eyes, dry mouth, slurred speech, loss of short term memory, not being able to find the words to speak, weak voice, loss of balance, weaker muscles, urological problems, nightmares and probably many others that do not come to my mind now. I personally think that most of these symptoms are negatively affected by DBS. Am I right?
