If we think things should be added, do we add them here?

A few of us in the UK have been diagnosed with Paroxysmal Dyskinesias so that should be added.

Also Dystonia is reported.

Intention tremor as well as tremor.

Ataxia

I agree that clumsiness and pins and needles should be added too.

Does a positive rhomberg (falling when the eyes are shut) fit here?
