    • Hi Linda, You're very welcome. From what I've read this appears to be so... that Tremor-Dominant PD patients lose their relative advantage over the non-dominant ones over the course of several years. But, if I'm interpreting the information correctly, Tremor-Dominant patients have are much-less likely to develop dementia during the course of their disease. Please understand though Linda, I'm just another patient on this site (a friend) with a similar set of symptoms. While I have a good education, I'm certainly not an expert. I hope this has been helpful. I hope to hear from Kathy as I'd like to thank her for starting this thread. Blessings!
    • I think that I enjoyed the second book a bit more. Both were good but..#2  was better for me.
    • Apathy in PD is overplayed.Like anyone you have to move your muscles to reeducate the cringing brain.lol I have changed some old habits but I do a lot more new things that I ever thought Id do I might give up some fishing but I plan on doing more golf Despair leaves me when zi get out of bed.lol I take less c/l than 3 years ago now
    • It really sucks,let's hope they find a cure asap for PD.Afterall all medications comes with side effects.
