My first neurologist appointment for the PD is next Tuesday. It was scheduled for Nov but they had a cancelation and called me. YAY
I asked if I should stop taking the carb/levo before the appointment so the doctor can evaluate the symptoms and the receptionist said no which surprised me. I was diagnosed by my GP who I have been seeing about my litany of problems including tremors now for awhile. He finally diagnosed me by starting me on the carb/levo and seeing that it had wonderful results.
I hate the idea of going off the med for any time at all, but how can the doctor do an evaluation with my symptoms being suppressed?
Please tell me what to expect at this first visit and what do you think about me staying on the carb/levo for the visit.
