Hi @Lloydy1966 and welcome. There’s no defining with Parkinsons as we are all different, what can you expect ? Again, as we’re all different this isn’t something that you can say is the norm for the progression of the disease. I had tremors in my hands for most of my life and was under the Doctor for it, my diagnosis not coming to fruition until 2011. Prior to this I had a groin hernia operation which was the trigger for my onset of the disease. I too have some memory loss, balance issues, walking in a peculiar fashion almost as if to say i’m drunk, speech issues, my legs twitch when i’m sitting in that they will involuntarily knock together. Going to the other extreme without frightening you, full body tremor which includes head shaking, this is what my eldest brother had, it doesn’t mean to say that you will get this so keep an open mind. Considering the disease isn’t supposed to be hereditary I and a lot of others would beg to disagree.
What I will say to you is to adopt a positive attitude and not change your life style to accommodate it, you will know in yourself when something is on the change and needs tweaking. Speak to your GP Surgery to find out where your nearest Parkinsons Nurse is located. In the meantime go on Youtube to have a look at Parkinsons Exercise, there’s one on there produced in Australia which is very good. Read through other Introduction stories to help you in your quest for a better understanding of the disease to see what others in your position are experiencing. Take care and stay safe.
