I was diagnosed with Parkinson's DIsease in 2003. I spent w great deal of time studying and reading and talking to poeple about the disease. I came to the conclusion that I have had this for quite a few years prior to the diagnosis, but on a very low scale. When I was in high school I had hand trermors. I remember two occasions when I froze, withih the last 20 years;, one was getitng out of my bed in college and freezing ond falling to the floor, the other was when I was teaching jump rope to some students during recess and froaze. I couldn't move. There was also an incident, years ago,, when I couldn't bring my soup spoon to mny mouth. I also remember wearing high heeled shoes for the first itme in awhile, and feeing very dizzy and unstable. Do any of you believe you have had PD for many years and are just realizIng it now ? .
