Unhappy Possible Parkinson's

I have just been diagnosed with Parkinson's. I have shakes on both my hands and twitching on my face. They started me on Sinemet which made my symptoms worse. I'm on 1 100mg. tablet a day now and the shakes are less but my right arm, Left arm, and right leg are very weak. Will I get my strenght back or will it be like this the rest of my life?

Re: Possible Parkinson's

No way to tell. All I can say is that I was REALLY bad when things started and I'm MUCH better. You're gonna find it's up down up down down down up up up down up. Just when you think things are cool, you'll have a rotten day. And then, whammmo! Weeks at a time are better.

Just know that it's not a straight line, it's more like the stock market!!!!
