People with Huntington’s disease (HD) chorea may find it difficult to do everyday things like going to the bathroom, taking a walk, or dressing themselves without help. Huntington's chorea may also make it difficult to talk, chew, and swallow.1

In a 2016 survey, care partners reported chorea as the most impactful symptom of Huntington's disease. As Huntington's chorea progresses, people experiencing movements may have pain, and may become increasingly dependent on their care partners for help. They often find they can no longer drive a car or work outside the home.1,2
