Hi J. Yes, I am a caregiver for my husband. He has a tremor on the right side, various pains and gets very agitated. And, PD doesn't stop you from having other things wrong with you. He has gone through many stages from disbelief, denial. anger, depression but he is now very active with our local PD group.
I was so worried about Alzheimer's that PD slipped in under the radar and took me by surprise. My legs are a problem, I put this down to a problem with lower spine, but for a while I have been clumsy and often seem to need a sit down. The slowness and poor coordination I could relate to but there is my memory problems as well. Could be stress.
My scan is next sunday, I seemed to get into the system quite quickly, but now I am getting more nervous about it all.
