I've been taking Sinemet for almost a month now and Azilect for a week, and my symptoms are much improved. My Neurologist gave me a tentative diagnosis of having Parkinson Disease. How do I know if it is not a placebo effect that I'm having? Stopping the meds would not answer the question because I can tell when it is getting close to time for the Sinemet because I start experiencing some of the tensness and aches and tremors again. So I know for sure if I stop the Sinemet I'll be back to having the full range of symptoms again.
If it is not Parkinson's what could it be? The tremors are resting tremors not action tremors so I don't think it could be ET.
I don't understand why the Neurologist made the diagnosis "tentative".
