Does My Dad Have really Parkinson?

I was wondering if you can help me. My dad was just diagnose with Parkinson's a few weeks ago but we're not all that sure if he does. To give you a little info about him. He is almost 82 years old and back 6 years ago he fell off a ladder and broke his left shoulder really bad and about 2 years ago he got shingle on his right hand and he has a really bad back the doctor said it's spinal Stenosis and for years he has had vivid nightmares and acts on them.

Ok now fast forward to nowadays As his back get worst he shuffles his feet loses his balance and has a blank face. He has been having more and more dreams/hallucinations. During nighttime in his dreams he sees people and now he is seeing people dogs cats he sees spots on the sofa's, the pictures on the wall looks like they're tip on it sides the same with the table lamps. he sees like rain drops on the floor well you get the idea.

The doctor put my dad on Requip and now it seem like he is hallucination more. Does any of this sounds like he has Parkinson's I really think he has something else going on. thanks for any help you can give me. Ken

Re: Does My Dad Have really Parkinson?

Sorry I forget to say that my dad hands shake at times not very much at all and when he does he's always sitting on his recliner lifting something like a heavy book a dinner plate so on. He is really weak too. thanks Ken
