Default Does this sound like Parkinson's?

Hello, below are my symptoms. Does this sound like Parkinson's? Thank You.

First, I want to say I have no resting tremor, only action tremor. But I do have the following symptoms. My first symptom was only loss of fine motor skills in left hand for 2 years, then rest of symptoms followed.

1. Still have strength in left hand but loss of fine motor skills in left hand:
EXAMPLES:
- typing difficult in left hand
- buttons more difficult
- putting rubber glove on left hand difficult because can’t wiggle left hand

2. Slow and sometimes jerky movement of fingers. Violent tremor if I try to move fingers, hand arm fast.

3. Hand and wrist stiffness and less flexibility

4. Loss of automatic movement of left hand and left arm, have to think about motions.
EXAMPLE:
- have to think about swinging left arm when walking, otherwise left arm doesn’t swing

5. Action Tremor of left hand and arm when trying to make quick deliberate motions

6. Occasional Drooling when I am concentrating on a task. Lots of drooling at night

7. Weak left shoulder

8. Wife tells me that I sometimes might drag my left foot when walking in the park

9. Occasional brain fog and not as much mental energy

John,

Welcome to the forum.

I think it is fair to say that the members of this forum have been reluctant to diagnose. Even if we were qualified to diagnose, a post can only carry a limited amount of information. So, I would suggest you see your doctor.

An exception to this, is if you have no medical backup available. If so, there is a wealth of advice that can be given,

John

Yes, it does sound a lot like the onset of PD. It also sounds like a lot of other illnesses. See a movement neurologist.
