Hi Verlin,

 

Are you asking forum members if you have PD?  I don't think anyone could hazard a guess based on the information you have provided but at the very least I hope you have discussed these symptoms with a doctor. 


Gardener, female, 58, diagnosed at 55, 650 mg of Sinemet daily.

We all know how frustrating it is to have symptoms and not know why. Keep looking for a doctor you are comfortable with. As many will say, a Movement Disorder Specialist who works with Parkinson's is the best and the Parkinson Foundation number can help you. It is listed at the beginning of the forum.

Good luck to you. The answer awaits you...bless you.
Dx'd 6/13 @ 66. Symptoms 10 years prior.

Normal DaT scan, normal MRI. Dx'd w/l dopa challenge by MDS

You need to ask for a referral to a neurologist.  It can be very frustrating trying to get people to listen to you, I've had my share of bad doctors and even a bad neuro (examined me less than 5 minutes and didn't see anything remarkable even though I was having tremors right there in front of him).  Keep pushing until you get someone that cares.  My break came when I landed an appointment with a physician's assistant.  Someone still young and curious enough to investigate my symptoms and send me to the right people to figure it out. 

 

Good luck!
