Does this sound like PD to you?

My husband has been experiencing left hand pinky tremor off and on since August. He saw a MDS a couple of months ago who said it sounded like it could be dystonia, but to come back in 6 mths if the tremor had not gone away, or if other symptoms developed. He has since had the same off and on pinky tremor and has also experienced one episode of foreman tremor (left) and has had one chin tremor. He is otherwise very healthy. We have noticed that the tremor seems to be more frequent when he is experiencing stress. Does this sound like early warning signs of PD?

My husband had a very slight three finger tremor - also very healthy though not young. Did not worry until I could hear his feet dragging on the carpet when he walked. Other basic signs looked for when we went to the specialist. Non blinking. Being unable to bring your finger to your nose from arm stretched in front. . Not being able to follow your hand with your eyes when you raise your hand above your head. [these among many of course] Well controlled..but worse if stressed. Hope all is well. Ce

Re: Does this sound like PD to you?

I first noticed mine when playing golf. When I would set up the ball, I always grasp my club with the left hand first. The club would shake up and down like a tunning fork. Iwould put might right hand on and it would stop. I went for a couple of years after that with the same pattern. I did not think much about, just thought I was to tired comming directly to the tee box without warming up first. After that I started to sweat a lot and noticed when I would look back at the green( don't ask why golfers do that we just do), I would see scrap marks instead of spike holes in the turf. Still did not go to the doctor untill four years after that. I could not hold a tray at KFC one day, my left hand shook so badly, I almost spilled everything on the floor. I made a doctor's appointment and he gave me some sedative pills and made an appointment with a Nuerologist and that is how my journey started. From there the symtoms progresed . Fist was put sinement and now have been put on requip, excersize every day. They sent me to Physical Therapy and taught me some excerises I can do at home.

Here is hopping you happiness

One other thing I am doing is a strict excersie routine for an hour every day. Seems to have overcome some of the problems with P.D..
