Hello from the Canadian prairies where we are on the verge of the joys of winter.
I was diagnosed with tremor dominant PD about 3 years ago. That neuro did one test. He told me to rest my hands on my lap and count down by 7's from 100. My hand was trembling by the end and he simply said "early stage parkinson's, and he was right, I had PD! He told me he would not put me on medication because I was only in the initial stages of the problem. I solved that little dilemma by going to another neuro who immediately put me on the maximum daily dose of amantadine and half daily dose of mirapex. I was lucky, within a couple of days, I was free of the tremor and since then I have lived a relatively normal life (touch wood). I was also told that most victims take longer to respond to the drugs: so have patience and you should see an improvement soon. And, believe me, PD is not the monster you might be imagining. We can all live without it, but we learn to adapt.
I have found that exercise and the avoidance of stress keeps the symptoms at bay. Don't do what I do. I am a fan of crime drama shows such as The Killing and Blacklist. I should avoid them because they are very stressful to me and my poor right hand takes the brunt of it, jumping around like the proverbial mexican jumping bean. From now on, Mary Poppins is as stressful a movie as I am going to watch. (If you believe that, I have a bridge in Brooklyn for sale - cheap).
My journey with PD can be found on my blog at www.wpgchap.blogspot.ca. It is where I go to laugh about the disease and moan about the disease. A little of both.
Good luck and best wishes.
