I was dx finally, after much tooing and froing. in June, and am on Sinemet. I am also 71 and it seems to me, perhaps wrongly, that most people on the forum are younger..I am reasonably well and very active, My husband and I would describe ourselves as very active grandparents. My main symptom has been the tremor, and that is now well controlled by the meds.I would like to find some older people to chat to. I always enjoy and learn from all the posts, but feel that perhaps the experience of being older sets me apart a little.
