My mom shakes her head (not hands, head only) frequently. It has been going on for at least 10 years, getting worse, but with no other symptoms. It is involuntary, and a doctor once diagnosed it as rheumatoid arthritis. That doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me. What do you think?

Can you describe the head shaking? Is it like "No-no" movements?
Can you give me some more data (if there are any) from her medical history and personal data (age, profession,...)?
