Hi I am 60 years old and a retired Legal PA and live in Canvey Island, Essex. I had slight tremors in my left arm for a couple of years but my GP never referred me to a neurologist until this year when I started to have tremors in my right arm too. I was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease in July and prescribed Pramipexole 3 times a day. This has helped with the tremors but I have noticed that my short term memory has got much worse than it was. Can anyone tell me if this is caused by the medication (not mentioned in the accompanying leaflet) or whether this is just another symptom of PD. Any info would be much appreciated. Thanks.
