1 pointMy opinon. As well as it may work for some people, using MMJ isn't replacing the lost dopamine, and only masking the symptions of PD. I'm not against its use at all but I consider it self medicating when the best medicine is being ignored or under utilized. The goal is to bring our bodies back to a normal biological condition with the proper use of sinemet, not just mask the PD symptoms. Replace what our body is lacking. Tremors arent the only symptom of PD.
1 pointI'd say that the tests are to rule out other more serious things, like a brain tumor, MS, etc. Once all that is ruled out, then they will be able to more seriously consider PD. Even if you are diagnosed with PD, I wouldn't freak out. Millions of people each year get a diagnosis MUCH worse than PD. You can still live your life relatively normally with PD.
