It appears that I have two new friends to talk with. Thank you for welcoming me to the neighboorhood. You both have compassion, that is evident in your replies, so nurse or lab tech does it matter. I am still working, I am a green buidling consultant and talk for a living....for the last year or so it has been fun trying to find words that use to come so easy.
Lovedogs55, I had a prostatectomey last year so I understand, thankfully after radiation, my PSA as been non-detecatable. We have 1 dog, two horses, and 4 cats that have adopted are barn and home. They all are geat and help keep me similing.
Researching the web about Parkinson's and Parkinisoms frustrates my wife. So I don't get to do it often. Besides this sight do you recommned any others where chatting is possible. Talking with you is very helpful.View Thread
Thank you both, i really appresicate all the of comments. I especialy like the idea of having a spell check.... before posting. Laughing at myself is my excuse when my hands start temembling in a meeting, I mostly blame it on coffee. Anyway I guess this is the beginning of a new journey that I will face and deal with...
By the way, I seem to be bitting my tounge while sleeping? Last night was the 4th time in a month. Is this a possible symptom. It seems like every new pain or soreness brings the question is it PD or age. I am 58.
Hi all, my name is Bruce I live in Texas and was told a few months ago that I have parkinsonisumes (I am sure that is spelled wrong) and was placed on Miripex .125 3x a day. This week I finally got a second opinion and was told I had Parkinsons. I have several of the symptoms but find that only my oral ability to communicate effetively is bothersome. It is hard to find words and stuggle in converstaions to get my thought out.
I am hoping that through this discussion I will be able to learn more about the conflict in diagnosis from two well regarded PD neuroloigsts and what changes I may be facing in the next 3 to 5 years.
Thank you in advance for taking the time to respond.View Thread
