I was diagnosed my my internist August 29th this year with Parkinson's an diabetes. I have had RSD in my left leg since 2004 and my right arm since 2010, (I Was told) and have been treated with Topamax, Lyrica, Amitriptyline, and Vitamin B all these years. Since I broke my arm It has been shaking and stiff and uncontrollable, weak, and progressive. I attributed that to RSD. My Right leg is also shaky and weak and I drag it when I walk, but I broke it last year when I fell. I broke my face when I fell in 2006. I fall a lot and do not have any balance, shuffle walk, have very little use of my right arm, have limited use of my left leg d/t a scarred up knee replacement x 2 in 11 mo and the resulting RSD (2005),
My DR put me on Sinemet and I puked the doses up each time I took them, though I was walking on beds of slugs and had anxiety attacks so bad I could't take it.Now she wants me to take mirapex.I read the side efffects and I don't want to take it. I am waiting till Ican get into a neuro, which seams to be impossible in my area! My question is: Does it really sound like PD even though I can answer yes to All the questions on the screening questionaire, if the symptoms started after a trauma like a fall and broken arm?
