Women with Parkinson's Disease

Has any woman had (extremity weakness, fatigue, gait issues, joint pain, stomach pain) passed off by a doctor stating they were from menopause and later found out they were from Parkinson's Disease?

  1. That's a great question. Hopefully if someone here has experienced this they will respond. I can certainly see how that could happen. If you have doubts about what a medical provider is telling you, you could consider a second opinion. Here's an article I found that does not specifically answer your question but discusses PD in women so you may find it helpful.
