Terry’s life so far

I have been living with this disease for years now and I have found that the problems I have experienced are better explained by others who know what I am feeling and experiencing.

Shared experiences

Seems we all have different symptoms coming from this disease, my own seems strange to some of the doctors I have seen in the past. I am now dealing with pain in my left leg at the knee joint, that comes and goes.

I also had to deal with a stroke last year. On top of that, I suffer from seizure disorder.

Hearing from others

I have got a great team of doctors who help me as much as they can. I am a Vietnam veteran and I go to the VA hospital in Indianapolis. But like I said before, the best information I get is from others who have this disease.

Please let me know if there are other people dealing with this pain in the leg thing.

    Thanks for sharing more about yourself, @terryb. I agree with your statement about learning from others who have Parkinson’s, too. And you’re certainly not alone with leg pain. We have a great article that talks more about leg pain here: https://parkinsonsdisease.net/living/leg-pain/. Hope this is helpful information! – Chris, ParkinsonsDisease.net Team

    Thanks Chris, I read the material you suggested and I found it to be very helpful. I now have a better idea of what to say to my doctors as far as what questions to ask.
    Coodoe’s my friend!
