Hi, Need any advice on symptoms-
Have been having trouble with bending down- at times unable to get up to a stand a year ago. I have trouble walking up and down stairs. I am extremely slow when walking and I am only 56.
Saw neurologist who said take parkinson meds and if it helps you most likely have it. Only had one time hand tremor. Did not take the meds as I was sure I don't have it but now I am rethinking it. I went to drs to see why my entire legs were hurting so much, that has gotten better but sometimes when I over do they ache all over. I did have one occasion last year when I tried to step down from step stool and i froze for a min or two. I am hoping dr is off on this. I did have MRI which showed lesion in globus pallidus( area which affects movement).
I have been having alot of weakness in legs on and off for about 3 years. ??? thoughts? thinking of going back to neurologist to see if I can get a referral to movement specialist.
