Hello again, Dirky --
Most of us can see in retrospect the first symptoms of PD that we didn't recognize at the time. For me, gastroparesis and difficulty swallowing were early symptoms. The former stayed with me, but I haven"t had any further trouble swallowing in the past 15 years or so. Meanwhile, of course, I developed a variety of other, more typical symptoms: tremor, awkward gait, difficulty with cutlery, shrinking handwriting, inability to swim. But once I started on medication (Mirapex first), all of those disappeared except the trouble with cutlery.
I know that in the future, some or all of them will return, perhaps accompanied by even worse symptoms, but I do what I can: exercise a lot, take the right balance of meds., and maintain a positive attitude.
Keep smiling! It helps. J
