Hi Silentwolf, I'm so sorry you are so very young to be diagnosed with parkinsons.
I didn't take any meds for the first 12 months of my diagnosis in 2011 (but had symptoms in 2010), but once I started on the meds Ropinirole XL slow release, which I might add do not suit everyone, I felt so much better, including the problems with my balance. All the symptoms don't go away by magic but the meds do help to a certain extent. The only thing is still have is the problem with sleeping which is something we all put up with regardless of what meds we are on. Hope your neuro can sort you out with meds that suit you and make you feel a bit better.
