  1. PIGD

    I'm trying to find more information on the PD variant PIGD or Postural Instability and Gait Disorder. I can find brief mentions of it and a couple of research papers, but what I would like is a description of what symptoms fall under this classification. I am among the 30% (?) of patients who do not have tremors. In fact if you look at the list of qualifying symptoms for PD I don't have any of them and do have a lot of the symptoms that are considered disqualifying for PD such as bilateral symptoms, early falls. Yet my DatScan showed positive for PD and Sinemet works wonders for me. My doctor who is a movement specialist doesn't know how to classify me or what is wrong with me. I was hoping to be able to take the symptoms for PIGD in when I see her again in Nov. and ask about it. Has anybody seen any information that I may have missed on this variant? Kathy
