I was told six months ago that I have PD. I started taking Mirapex. To be honest, I don't see how a doctor can look at you , ask a few questions and then say...you have Parkinson. The more I thought about it the less it made sense. I stopped taking the meds.
I can't tell the difference between old age and what could be PD. I stay tired and I don't sleep well at all, a slight tremor...sometimes, my memory is awful...old age or PD?
It makes me mad to think he would put me on a med without really knowing for sure. I am on a fixed income and meds are not cheap. I am 63 yrs old and I need better answers than what I've gotten. I need proof.
