confused

Hi I'm New To This Board, And I've Been Intrested Reading All Your Post.
I Was Dx With Parkinson Disease Jan 2004. My First Symts Was A Headache That Felt As Though My Brain Was Half Asleep, I Felt Diisorintated, Slurred Speech, Bumping Into Doors, Balance Was Not Good And Had Afeeing As Though I Was Drunk, Doc Said It Was High Blood Presure.
6 Mths Later I Found I Could'nt Wave I Could Not Do The Litttle Hand Movements.
4 Months Klater I Kept Tripping Up And Stumbing I Found I Was Dragging My Right Foot. I Thought I Had A Stroke, Went To Doctors She Sent Me To A Neurologist. In The Mean Time I Noticed That My Little Finger Trembled When I Closed My Hand Or Did Somethng.
The Neurologist Put Me On Roprinirole, Which Gave Me Lots Of Side Affects And Made The Pd Symts Worse, I Came Off Of Them And Now I On Homopathic Medicine, I've Been On This 4 Months All Though I Felt Better At First, Maybe It Was Because I Came Off The Drug, Now My Balance, Stiffness, Tremors (which Are Not At Rest But When I Do Something) Are Much Worse, I Can Hardly Walk. I Also Get Like A Buzzy Feeling In My Thumb And Forefinger , Also Feeling Like Pins And Needles In Hands And Arms And Very Tight Stomach Which Hurts When I Take Deepp Breaths, I Aslso Keep Catching My Breath As Though I Don't Have Enough Air.
I Wonder If I Have Ms Not Pd As The Pill Did Not Do Anything, And The Pins And Needles Problem. Any Info Would Be Appreciated Thank You.
Joanbeth

Re: confused

Thanks Isana And Dessell I've Just Recently Had An Mri . Blood Taken In Jan 04 All Ok Except They Said My Ck's Was High What Ever That Means. Can You Tell Me If Ms Always Show Up In Mri Of Brain Or Do You Need Mri Of Spine, What Other Test Are Likely To Show Ms.. The Last 2 Days I've Had Bladder Infection, And That Means More Fluid Intake Which My Bladder Can't Handle , Consequently I'm Incontinent,
Is This A Symt. Of Ms. Also If I Do Have Ms Do Drugs Work.
Thanks For Listening. Joanbeth
