Does anyone know if there is a test for Parkinson's? Maybe a spinal tap? I have tremors in my right hand, and just saw a neurologist who first wants to rule out a brain tumor, so I had an MRI on Saturday. He didn't think I have a tumor, but has to rule it out. He thinks it is probably Parkinson's and wants me to come back every 4 months to see if/how it progresses. Not knowing will drive me nuts. He said that there is a test for Parkinson's. I was kind of stunned when in his office, so I didn't think to ask the right questions. Since then I've been searching, but I haven't found that there is a definitive test. Does anyone in this community know? I have a follow up appointment in a couple of weeks, so if not, I hope I can remember to ask him then.
Live a long and healthy life!
