I,m 52, male. After about 10 months since a slight and occasional resting tremor in my right arm and leg apperered, a Datscan confirmed diagnosis of early PD 3 months ago. I exercise regularly as always but when I run for 5-10 min. my right leg blocks. It unblocks immediately if I run backwards or walk. I have not noticed any rigidity or slowness.
Since the diagnosis I have taken Azilect with no difference in my tremor, but lately I have noticed dizziness some minutes after I start walking. My neurologist has told me to interrupt Azilect for 15-30 days and see what happens. I.m on my forth day without Azilect and I have no observed any difference neither in the tremor nor in the dizziness. I don,t know if the dizziness is caused by Azilect or is a new symptom of PD. Besides I am perhaps missing the claimed slowing effect of Azilect on the disease progress.
Thank you for your comments on my case.
