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.

Hi Jannie

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.
Take care.

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. I have dx now for nearly 9 years and I have learned far more from using this site that any talks with medical professionals. Welcome again and hope to chat along the way.

Hi all

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??

#19
I think the latter Benji.
I'd have a good night's sleep if I were you.
G'night!
