Oct 11, 2018 · Symptoms: Could this be Parkinson's? in Parkinson's Disease

That isn’t how it started with me, but everyone has a different experience.

I’d really suggest you see a neurologist. Then you can get an educated diagnosis if it is and relief if it isn’t.

Good luck.

You might also consider Glucerna. Less sugar load.

I kick like I’m in a race. It got some better once I was diagnosed and started Sinemet. Started Clonazepam recently but I don’t know if it affects the kicking yet.

I have agent orange presumed PD without tremors yet so I’ll listen in for the future.

I’m in. A quick read of the posts puts me right into this group. I’m in Texas and carry a sweater and often gloves everywhere I go. People think I’m nuts. Good thing I’m 73 and some eccentricity is expected. Stores and even church cause my hands to go frozen and burn because they are so cold. I’ve also got Parkinson’s and a few other things and no idea yet if any of them are related. I’ll ask at my next Dr visit but I would assume not or it would have been mentioned before.

I’m already part of the Moods connection though it isn’t very active.

I got a “page not found” on both and tried manually entering them on my browser with the same result.

One day closer to a cure every day.  Honestly, at this point my back causes me more issues. And a sick cat.

Due to my aversion to flying (several incidents in Nam including being shot down and I wasn’t even a pilot) we took a cruise ship to Hawaii.

Five days on the water going over, 5 days touring the islands and 5 days back. Guess which 5 days were rainy and cold? Yep. Had fun anyway. Met some wonderful Brits and we’ll be visiting them at their home next year. Spending a week with my best friend

and his wife on a Caribbean cruise in the fall. Doin’ what I can while I can.

Saw my neurologist a week ago. No increase in Sinemet (1.5 tabs 5x) or Azilect but a few months ago he added a half anti-anxiety pill 2x as needed and it helps a lot. I’d been having some issues with rapid shallow breathing with mental or physical effort.

Can’t imagine why I’d be anxious about anything. I’ve played with timing and it doesn’t appear to cause any issues so I consider life to be Golden right now. Oh, came up a little anemic so added a vitamin with iron timed between Sinemets. Started a probiotic

a few months ago and rarely need Miralax now. 

Now I have no more secrets…. Doing great living on the sunny side of the lake.
