Hi, my name is Al and I was diag. with PD. about 2 yrs ago. After major heart surgery, however I am sure that I had syptoms of pd that were not diag. before that. My only effects are tremor in right arm, slowness in walk, I am 74 years old and I can't remember things as I used to and I tend to get confused at times. I have developed some problems with the swallowing issue also. I tend to make sure I chew my food well and take smaller bites. I am fortunate that I am a veteran, and treated by the neors. docs. there at the VA. These docs, see more PD patients in one month than a private neo. will in a year.
Hope this helps,
