Does anyone who has this disease also have another family member that has had a neurological affliction as well...even another type? My mother got remarried when we were very young to a wonderful man who adopted us as his own. We never had contact with my original father, but I found out by some half-siblings that he ended up having Parkinson's. Another member had the same occurance with her mother having Parkinson's. There is also a theory that some family members have an inherent trait to be predisposed to a neurological condition that is "triggered" by an "event" such as trauma or perhaps surgery, as some of y'all have noted.
