OK , I was dx with PD about a week ago , I am in shock a bit as I only mentioned my hand tremor to the doctor as I was seeing him for something else ..it wasnt really aan issue .... he sent me to a neurologist who confirmed his suspicion that it was PD , however , he has wrote in the DX (possible Parkinsons tremor ) and put me on Sinmet 25/100 3x daily ... what I cant seem to work out is this , most of the literature surrounding PD states that a resting tremor is the definition changer between ET and PD .?.. I do not have resting tremor , rather it fluctuates when moving my body strenuously.. I dont have any other of the classic symptoms ... I feel like I am losing my mind at times trying to figure it all out .....I mean , if there is no defining clinical definition , how many people get misdiagnosed etc ?
