Mirror Movement Disorder

court325 posted:
I am 16 years old, and all my life I have not been able to move just one hand. For example, when I bend my left pinky finger, my right pinky finger automatically moves. I am able to type, write, etc. but I find it more difficult than others. I was looking for an exact diagnosis and I am pretty sure I have found the problem. There is a disorder called Mirror Movement Disorder. I have found it on several sites online. (Just google it and you will see the countless sites listed) My question is, since it is not curable, should I just move on or go to a doctor to confirm. My only apprehension is that they will treat me like a guinea pig because Mirror Movement Disorder is so rare.
