Was diagnosed a year ago at 51. Now I am 52. I started with a thumb that did an electric toothbrush imitation, one caffeine overdose leg and the other leg that sometimes forgets to walk with me. Started on Azilect but tried Selegiline because of the Unaffordable Health Care Act and costs. Bc Selegiline didn't go over well I did my whole denial thing and decided not to go back on Azilect. Mistake but eye opener. All limbs now have tremor and left foot hated walking. Brain didn't work well and had a depressive break down. Back on Azilect, head is better and so are tremors. Wears off at 330. But now I have burning sensation in arms and legs and cramps in toes and foot because of curling up. Sometimes walk on toes or side of foot so it doesn't hurt. Starting on more Meds but as usual waiting on Insurance to get it's Sh*t together. Yes there is a question! LOL All of this is happening so fast, what happen to what the doc said "people live 20-30 years with PD". If all of this is happening within a year what next??? I read this and I feel pathetic because it is not as bad as so many others but as quickly as all these symptoms are coming I don't see anyone can call this a slowly progressive disease.
