For the last 2 and a half years I have been experiencing some strange symptoms. A stiffness in muscles on the right side of my body was the worst of them. Started in my calf, toes and moved upwards. Moved to my shoulder and hands. Got to the point where I couldn't squeeze with right hand or bend toes. Leg was so stiff I limped couldn't lift leg enough to put on pants without pain. Writing was difficult as was walking. I was also experiencing twitches or tremors in my hand/arm. Was fine if it was busy, but appeared when not doing anything. Neurologist said it was different from a typical PD tremor. He was unsure what issue was but gave my Sinemet to see if it helped these symptoms. It has been 2 weeks since I started.

It has helped a lot. Tremors have completly disappeared and rigidity is much improved. What I am wondering is does this mean that I am likely to have PD? Go back to see Neuro in 2 weeks but quite paranoid about results.

Did you do blood work? I have Parkinson's disease in my family. I was twitching and tremoring for 2 months. My doctor referred me to a neurologist suspecting ms or pd but did bloodwork first. I tested positive for Lyme disease.
