If you feel you do not have Parkinson, what is the next step?

I firmly believe after much research and having Lymes disease 1st before the Pd, that every one needs a Lyme screen blood test done, this horrid Tick disease mimics Pd, it attacks the weakest part of your system. Mine was my muscles thus much damage then Parkinson. I had Lymes for 6 yrs before it was discovered, I had almost 2 yrs of off n on blood IV infusions of antibotics. 2 hrs per day 4 days a week. Finally the Lymes is gone but the Parkinson entered this all started when I was 45, now I am 55 it has been a been a very long road. All of this info was agreed with by my Neuro at the UW Wisconsin Movement & Disorder clinic, Madison WI. ALSO if you have a diagnosis of PARKINSONISM "ISM " MEANS of an unknown origin, Ins fought paying, when the "ISM" was dropped and I had PARKINSON the insurance paid. Hope is info helps some one, blessing to all! Kadie

I had Chronic Fatigue before I had PD and once was wrongly diagnosed with Lymes D. I think a lot of the tests for Lyme are incorrect.


I have a doctor who specializes in Lymes and yes the tests can be false, but I m concerned if they though there is a possiblity of having Lymes this is a really bad disease and re testing is the best. Better days ahead for both of us! Kadie


I was tested--negative. I still wonder. I feel overmedicated and I'm in so much pain.


The only way to be sure you have PD is to have a DaT Scan. It is new and costs around $3,000.00. Look it up at. Then DaTScan.....I just attended a seminar/talk on this and it is amazing. It has only been in the U.S. a couple of years and isn't everywhere. We do have one here in Colorado....if you can't find anything on it let me know .

ALL I know is I had a positive Lymes test and was very ill from it . There are ways of diagnosis Lymes that does not cost that at much the best info I have comes from a Lymes doctor . Dr. B. & Dr. R. recognized the severity of my illness and when from there, This is at a family medicine & Specialty clinic in Wisconson. Kadie
