Parkinson's

Since arriving here in Panajachel, I have developed symptoms which I believe may be Parkinson's Disease. This involves my right hand and arm. Also my right foot. I arrived at this self-diagnosis by looking at videos of persons with Parkinson's on YouTube. Also by reading online medical information.

When I experience this problem, I have somewhat uncontrolled movement. Thru using a great deal of concentration, I'm often able to reduce these movements in order to  accomplish a task. For example, like right now. I am using both hands to type this blog to you.

Doctor appointment
I have made an appointment with my primary care doctor at Kaiser Permanente for March 15th. I return to the United States on March 11th.

  4. Self diagnosing is not a good idea. I agree with what Croft said. Meanwhile try to enjoy each day to the fullest.

  5. Thanks for making the doctor appointment right away. At our ages, it's important to not let anything "go away on it's own". Thanks again for all the travel again.

  8. I had that happen to me once and it turned out to be a medication I was taking. Changed medications and the problem when away. Hoping the best for you!

  9. Routine check up with your family doctor is most important for all the patients of this disease.Meet and greet Luton airport parking

  10. Morning, George. Smart of you to make that appointment so quickly.
    We need to know that our George is taken care of! I do hope your symptoms go away, or at least don't get any worse before you see that doctor. This business of getting older is quite a trip, isn't it? We never know when something new is going to crop up out of the blue.
