Thank you for your reply.

I have a mild tremor in my right hand only I am taking meds. Levo Carb. It is helping out. It is a you stated, frustrating. The one thing that I did do at the start was to get a second opinion. didn’t believe it myself. I never thought about Physical therapy for PD. No one suggested this to me. I will have to have the doctor refer me to this. I will have to look for a support group. This has been suggested to me, but I never did anything about it. Now is the time to do this.

I haven’t reached out to anyone. As I am strong and can do everything myself NOT.

Thank you for getting back to me so quickly.

Kris

Yes, it comes as a shock to PD patients to find that they must be their own advocates. Not all of us are temperamentally suited to stare down the doctor as he's about to bolt for his next patient to ask about recommendations for exercise, or PT, or speech therapy. But you should. Britain's National Health Service by comparison encourages an immediate team approach to PD care. Collegiality best benefits the patient. (cf. NICE Guidelines)
