Hello everyone! Happy New Year! My dad, 64, was diagnosed with PD a year ago this February. I have to be honest, after reading some of the posts in other Parksinson FB groups, I'm scared to death. I'm hoping that some of you can share your own personal PD experiences by commenting below. My dad's primary symptom, thus far, is a significant tremor in his left hand which sometimes extends down his left leg. My parents are divorced and my dad lives in an apartment (with a lot of stairs) all alone. He also lives an hour away from me. As you can imagine, this whole scenario is very nerve wracking for me. He currently does not take Parkinson medication as he says he does not feel he needs it yet. He has joined a support group, completed a PD exercise program, but now has not been doing his exercises due to a bone fracture he has in his foot. If anyone has any thoughts, comments, stories to share, etc., I would greatly appreciate it. I'm worried that his condition could decline rapidly and I don't know what I would do. My reason for this worry is from what I've read in other groups. Also, speaking of my dad's foot fracture, he said he was in the mall Christmas shopping and "couldn't raise his foot because of the bone fracture pain which caused him to hit his foot again into a clothes display". I questioned this because it didn't sound right to me. Maybe it could be just because of the bone fracture, but does this sound more like PD? He denies that it is. Thanks for your help!
