My PD symptoms

Growing up I was physically and emotionally abused by my father. I've had problems with tremors all of my adult life. In 2011 I started having sudden falls with loss muscle tone. Now in my mid 60s the tremors are more pronounced especially in the right hand. I also have dysphagia plus word finding and memory problems. 2019 I had vp shunt surgery which has had a 80% improvement. My walking ability has declined that I use a can. 10 years ago my walking was strong with good stamina. I now attend a pd treatment program here in town.
