Re: Husband just diagnosed
Yes, well he has been having trouble with rigidity in his hand. Also tremors and his hip on the same side. A little balance problems when he stands up.
Had just been going to the doc for his hand. Went to one doc who ruled out carpal tunnel. He told us to go to a neurologist. Well, the neurologist we went to see had a lot of training in working with motor disorder specialization. He had my husband perform some back in office tests, asked a bunch of "system review" questions and made a bold and assertive diagnosis. My husband is also blind due to Leiber's Optic Atrophy, and apparently Parkinson's is just one of the many illnesses that can go wrong. He has an MRI scheduled for later in the week to determine if there is anything else going on, but an MRI cannot confirm PD.
How did they diagnose yours?
