Today was my first appointment with the Neurologist. He gave me a regular neurological exam and said that from my examination and symptoms he really can't say it is Parkinson Disease for sure but since I have had a favorable result on the carb/levo his tentative diagnosis (he also referred to it as his working diagnosis) is PD. I already had the MRI to show no tumors or lesions or anything like that. I went over the litany of symptoms I have had for a long time and body aches was at the top of my list. He said that body pain is not a symptom of PD. Really? What convinced him to give a (tentative) diagnosis of PD is the fact that my tremors responded to treatment of carb/levo. He gave me a subscription for Azilect in addition to the carb/levo and wants to see me in 4 months unless there are new developments that brings me in sooner. Is this the normal course of events?
