That was kind of fun !! LOL! Mine was 54! My motor score was 38! Ha! Anyone else care to compete?
I strongly disagree with metfan! Any MOTOR updrs score greater than 35 is bad news! So, I can only guess we probably mis-calculated our scores ? ? (or at least I hope so...LOL)
So sorry my opinion was only based on my own exp and my ability to function regardless of my obstacles. So like all things PD we all handle it differently I must confess I was approaching 'off' when I took the test. Just retook it now and got a 36 so perhaps a 43 would difficult if that was the best I get when medicated as off periods be subsiquently worse... anyway this was fun to put a score on my PD, so much so I did it twice. How do you get a motor score?
And in case I haven't said it enough, I do not pretend to be an expert here, I am very much a begginner here, and anything I say is based on opinion and expierence. I will repeat what I have read and been told at times but normally state my sorce when I do so. Just using this forum as an avenue to get other peoples insight and share my own opinion. Remember opinions are like butt holes we all have them and people rarely care to see someone elses without requesting to first (yes that sounds like an odd request). This said my butt hole on the matter of score is that regardless of what any expert thinks you are only as disabled as you think you are, no matter the score. I went to high school with a young man who was wheel chair bound his entire life, had to use hand padles to drive a car, yes experts deemed him disabled and he used handicap parking and other assistance, but there was nothing I could do that he could not (besides walk) and he could kick my @$$ in a fight if it came down to it. He never let anyone call him disabled or handicapped, and refused help for anything he could do on his own. So with him as an example growing up yeah I believe disability is a state of mind, and not so easily defined by a panel of doctors.
That's just my opinion, I could be wrong...
