I was diagnosed 4 years ago and feel that I am progressing quickly. I don't have tremors, so maybe that is why. I have read on this site that PD without tremors progresses faster. The two things that bother me the most are my inability to speak and dystonia in my right foot and leg. When I go to the doctor, the store, or to a friend's house, I stammer and stutter so much I am very difficult to understand. I am not too bad first thing in the morning, but then I go down hill the rest of the day. I never know when the dystonia in my right foot/leg will occur. It can happen before I take my meds,,or after. (Riding my stationary bike helps some. I even take portable peddles with me when I go to someone's house.) I don't drive much anymore as when the movement starts I have difficulty driving. Cruise controls is a huge help to me when this happens. Walking is almost impossible.. I take Sinemet, 25/100, five times a day. (1 and 1/2 pills). Does anyone know of a magic pill that can control dystonia???? I wish
