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
