Living with Parkinson

It all started for me 10 yrs. ago. I noticed my right index finger was trembling and thought nothing of it. Then a few months later I became aware of my right hand shaking and could not control it. I called my family doctor and showed her what was going on and she wasn’t sure what was wrong. Then a few months later noticed the whole right side was trembling a lot and I saw a Neurologist and he could not figure it out so he sent me to University of Pennsylvania in Philly and from there I was diagnosed with PD that was in 2009. And here I am. I have a VERY SUPPORTIVE family. And now through the years more has happened. So many different things happening. I just found out about this support group a week ago (2017). I’m looking forward to speaking to and learning more about this disease.

    Thanks for sharing your story, @7tvx399caf, and welcome to our community! Great to have you here. I’m glad that you were eventually connected with a neurologist who was able to give you some answers. It’s really great that you have such a supportive family to see you through this. Thanks again for taking the time to share with us. – Chris, Team Member
