Good Morning! I'm brand new on here. I am a 36 year old male looking to pick someone's brain about early onset parkinsons disease. I have had symptoms for quite a while (weight loss, very fatigued, tremors in my thumb and finger, dry eyes, extreme upper back/shoulder pain, insomnia, etc.) It all came on quite gradual and then about three months ago it started getting quite a bit worse. Left leg freezes up. I get terrible muscle spasms, cramps, stiffness and uncontrollable movements. I've become completely intolerant to cold. Walking through the grocery store will send me into the worst tremors/chills I have ever had. If it gets humid outside even a little bit I sweat uncontrollably. I can't think straight at all. I'm a service manager at a very busy car dealership . I've been doing this for a long time, and multitasking has always been second nature. Now I can barely complete one task at a time. My Doctor sent me to a neurologist who didn't really seem to take me seriously and kept going back to stress. She ordered an EMG which came back normal and said she doesn't need to see me again. So, I went back to my doctor and he referred me to another neurologist but they can't get me in for five months. I convinced my doctor to describe me sinemet about three weeks ago because it had gotten so bad I wasn't sleeping at all. It worked within an hour and a half. My shoulder blade pain, which was by far the worst part, went away and hasn't been back at all. This medicine has taken care of at least 75% of my symptoms. My question is what does this mean? Does sinemet treat other conditions as well? Do my symptoms sound familiar to anyone?
