I’m 57 and have been diagnosed PD last summer. The neurologist told me “You have PD, we’ll start with Neupro 2mg. Come back in four months”.
I’m suffering from allergy, asthma, sinusitis and a couple of other nice little thing and I always thought “that’s your burden” and I got along with it.
Now PD is another league and today i understand why I had burn out symptoms and some kind of depression and anxiety since several years: it was PD announcing itself.
I have very light PD symptoms so far: left hand trembling, dizziness and some difficulty with balance ( forgot to say that they discovered Cervical arthrosis )
On the good side of life is that I work an live in the South of France, near to Nice, I have a great Italian family and three fantastic dogs.
Ah and btw. I’m German.
I was looking a while for a forum like this one but apparently nothing there in France except for Parkinson France.fr with some honorable local offline groups.
What I’m looking for is experience exchange with people who have PD in order to understand better this disease and how to prepare for the future. ( honestly I do not yet realize: PD? Me? You’re joking, huh? )
So that’s it. I already found some interesting threats. Are there some international members?
Thanks for having established this platform
