[Only registered and activated users can see links. ] showing early signs of Parkinson's disease?

A neurologist on Thursday said he has been observing early signs of Parkinson's disease from Filipino boxing icon [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].

Dr. Rustico Jimenez, President of Private Hospitals Association of the Philippines, told radio dzMM that among the early signs of Parkinson's being exhibited by Pacquiao include stuttering and hand twitching.

Jimenez urged the Filipino champion to retire from boxing in order to avoid what happened to Muhammad Ali (Cassius Clay) and award-winning trainer Freddie Roach who were both afflicted with the progressive disorder of the nervous system.

Misleading thread title.

The Dr, who has never examined Manny, is speculating that he may be displaying some symptoms of Parkinson's. Thats not a diagnosis, is it?

The thread title should be changed. There's no indication that this is true, and hopefully it is bollocks.

Doctor also has said hes never actually examined him, tested him or seen his medical records.

Its seems like a crock designed to get views on a Pacquiao fan site

the story is a load of shite, the guy hasn't even met Pacquiao and the story is similar to one that was written about Vitali Klitschko

How is the story a load of shite just because the doctor has not examined him?

The doctor is simply saying that from a distance it could be possible he is showing signs of parkinsons.

Doctors in general have a lot of credibility, I'm sure he is just airing his concerns.
