Hello I have been suffering from depression for 3 years + unexplained movements + mood swings. All the time they were treating me for depression and couldn't figure out where all these other symptoms where coming from. Thanks to a Neurologist and CAT scans and MRI's they finally found that I have Fahr's Disease. Not a good Diagnoses but at least I know what i have now. If anyonw has information on Fahr's disease it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.. There's not much out there.
