I was diagnosed with Parkinson desease about two years ago. I have been in denial even though I am sure it is
right, I am almost 65. I saw a Dr. at first and was on Permax but I did not like the way it made me feel so
I had her take me off of it. My symptom so far is tremor on the right side. Worse when I get nervous or talk to
several people. My muscles tighten up. This is all on the right. No new symptons since I was diagnosed,
except I seem weaker. I have always played golf and been very active . No more. I have a pain in my right
arm when I raise it and I wondered if this is due to the disease and the fact that I don'tswing my arm when
I walk. I did physical therapy but I dont'think it helped. The Dr. gave me Vioxx but I still feel pain. Maybe
its arthritis? I am wondering also if I am hurting myself by not taking medication. They say the meds start
to wear off after ten years or so and you have to try somethiing else. I thought why take them unless I
get more symptoms. I seem to have a better quality of life without the meds. Could I get some feedback
on this. I have never been on a message board before. Also does anyone take herbs for this?
