My symptoms had been accumulating over a period of about two years before I realized something wasnt right. When out socially people would ask if I hurt my back, or kept asking to repeat myself, and my handwriting went to hell, and I felt like my brain was just shutting down. THEN I connected the dots and went to see a neurologist at the VA hospital in Buffalo.That s when I got the good news.
When I got arounfd to investigating the symptoms of PD I realized I was experiencing about 90% of the signs minus the tremors haven't had them yet only minor twitching. I joined a support group in Buffalo, (PAWNY) Parkinsons Assoc of WNY, and that has been helpful. Connecting with others etc, but man it is still a bummer to know what lies ahead!
