hello my name is janni. i am 52 years old and was recently diagnosed with pd. its taken nearly 4 years for the doctors to come to this conclusion although i had a pretty good idea that it was pd.
i have been given requip for medication and it seems to be working quite well. i do have a lot of sleepless nights and terrible shooting pains in my legs. i have a very bad tremor in my left arm and have a habit of dropping things. usually cups or glasses.
pleased to meet you all.
Welcome to the forum. I hope you find it as useful as I have.
I have noticed lately I also seem to drop things a lot more frequently. Small things like buttons also seem a little more tricky. I'm sure you will find lot of support from this site.
Sorry janni !!

Hi janni, welcome to the forum. I hope that you will find it a helpfull and supportive place to be. When your feeling down theres always someone to chat to and some of the discussions are really helpful.

Thank you so much for such a warm welcome. I look forward to getting to know you.
Mind you, I did laugh at the last 2 notes sent by the 2 gentlemen. They gave me the impression of a dating agency advertisement.
Thanks again from janni

Seems that a previous post of mine has gone astray. How else can a reply to my post be made when it is not there? Or have I now lost the plot??
I think the latter Benji.
