    Possible PD

    Hi all, this is my short story

    Got through prostate cancer October 2017 radical prostatectomy, with an immense amount of help from another board on here. Love those guys

    Wife noticed tremors in left hand while we were on vacation May 2019. We were sitting on the beach and she noticed my left hand twitching, i didnt at all until then.

    Went to docs August 2019 for yearly checkup. Doc noticed the twitching and said it was most likely essential tremor. Put me on meds Propranolol for my high BP which were also used to treat essential tremor. They didn't have any effect the tremor was still there.

    Changed docs November/December 2019 who gave me in depth physical and questioning. Determined looked like early stage Parkinsons. Prescribed 25/100 carbilevadopa. They havnt made a great improvement but I can tell when I have forgotten to taken them or its nearing the time of my next dose.

    More recently I seem to have developed mild confusion forgetfulness and frustration very annoyed at myself when I get confused or forget silly things

    Doc is referring me over to a neurologist.

    Im researching/looking for one myself.

    What should i be asking when i call up their office. I guess i need to know if they are not just a neurologist but have experience in movement disorders and diagnosing PD

    Thanks
