hi, my husband has not been diagnosed with Parkinson's yet hut will he going for a DAT scan in a week or so. did anyone else start with just a leg tremor? we are so confused and only at the beginning of what I am afraid is going to be a long journey. thanks!
My husband and I both have leg tremmors but it has been diagnosed as restless leg syndrome. I hope yours is neither Parkinson's or RLS. We do take a Parkinson med for the RLS which doesn't always work. I hope I am not to negative.
PD can start in different areas. My mother had it and she noticed at first her strength was diminishing and then a twitch in her pinky. I was diagnosed in Jan 2012. My symptoms started in Sept 2010. I started to have pain in my right arm then my handwriting was getting smaller then a slight tremor in my right hand. In August 2011, my right leg started with a tremor. So in the beginning, PD can affect people differently but as it progresses it all becomes the same.
I have been on Mirapex since January 2012 and I take .5mg of Mirapex 3x a day. I see my doctor this Thursday. I believe that my meds need to be adjusted starting to have "off" times between dosages. Feeling more anxiety. Have Pain going down my right leg. This is so frustrating!!
