: i need help in finding the symptons of Parkinson's Desease. My husband can still walk but he drags his feed and says he has problems moving is hips and legs. is this a sympton of parkinson? He has been doing this for about two years and has just now been diagnoised with Parkinson's.
: I need to find out more about the desease.
I recently printed out the rating scale and it was 10 pages long, so I will direct you to where you can read all about Parkinson's and also print out a copy of the scale.
Go to :
This is the National Parkinson's Foundation. Once at the site, the main page will have "Ask the Doctor" Dr. Abraham Lieberman. Click on this, and it will take you to the next page, and there you will click on "Enter here to ask question......" Once you get to the next page, you will have a chance to sign up to receive his Q/A newsletter. Or if you don't want to join, you can click in that box and look for THIS: The Unified Parkinson Rating Scale 10/27/00 There you go! I hope you can get this information and more. Welcome to the board. You will find many caretakers here, such as yourself, and people like me, who have this disease. Bless you and happy reading! There is much to learn!
