This morning I went to my first appointment at the UAMS Movement Disorder Clinic and I was very impressed. Because it was my first appointment the doctor took a really long time with me. About an hour and a half. He told me so much I didn't know and explained a lot about my symptoms. Parkinson's is his specialty. I felt he really understood me and knew what I was going through. My other Neurologist did not understand at all (remember he is the one that said pain is not a symptom). He did a neurological examination and said that from my explanation of my symptoms and the exam he sees no need to do a Dat Scan at this time because it is obvious. He did say though down the road he may want to do a series of Dat Scans to check progression. I am very glad I switched Neurologists. It's a long trip to get to him but well worth it.
