Newly Diagnosed Mother
My 90 year old Mother has been diagnosed with early Parkinson's via observation of her symptoms. No MRI or blood tests were done. Can I be sure she has Parkinson's or could she be exhibiting Parkinson's symptoms without actually having PD? I am not sure what that means for her treatment and prognosis.
What to expect?
She has been prescribed medication and am waiting to hear back from her on what it is.
At 90 I don't expect her to live forever but what can I expect if she has Parkinson's?
Do you think there is enough awareness of Parkinson's disease?
