My mother pasted with having PD for over 20 years. I watch her as it progressed, but did not know until I was told that I had PD, which was a couple of months later. I was not aware of all the things that went with PD. As I have learned, it is different for eveyone with many problems. The quetion seems to be weather it is PD or the drugs that we take. I was becoming very stiff, but though that it was old age, altho I am only 62. After starting PD drugs, I can move again and some days feel wonderful, but not very often. Other days I can hardly keep my eyes open and then try and figure out what cause it with no answer except that is is part of having PD. Some days I get real jittery and can stay still,and when it happens at work it drive a little nuts, but I deal with it. Pd is not fun, I tell myself that at least it is not cancer, and that helps to keep a positive outlook.
