Alex Tn USA - Sunday, December 03, 2017 at (EST) Don our thoughts and prayers to you and your Family through this difficult times. Sent my VA Doctor a request to see if I have any in my liver.

Alex you are right but over the past few years I try to respect those that tell me they are sick.
Bill, if your shaking is not Parkinson then you may have peripheral neuropathy.
As it was explained to me the dioxin in agent orange destroys the nerve sheath allowing the nerves to short circuit.
You may want to push to get the VA Doc to determine what you actually have. Alex TN USA - Monday, January 08, 2018 at (EST) Agent Orange was in the water etc.
