I have recently (4/12/13) been diagnosed with Parkinsonism. To say I was stunned is an understatement, I went to see my doctor after my girlfriends nagging (I am a man we don't do doctors well). I have had a shaky left hand for a few years but over the last year or so it has got worse, the doctor said it was not Parkinsons and not Essential Tremor so was totally shocked when I was told it was Parkinsonism.
I have been given ropinirole tablets but have not started taking them yet as want to get Xmas out of the way first, if anyone has any experiences of this drug good or bad I would be very interested.
I am still working as a computer programmer but finding it very hard going and can only type with one hand as my left one shakes too much.
Think that's enough for now but happy to answer any questions, I am sure I will be asking lots too :)
