    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    What is happening to me?

    Two days ago I was diagnosed with Parkinson's after dealing with some of the symptoms for years. I'm glad I now know why I feel the way I do and I don't have to doubt myself anymore, but I have a problem.......
    I know little or nothing about this disease at all. The neurologist that saw me wasn't even the same guy that I was scheduled to see. All he did was confirm that I had it, he asked me if I had any questions which I was just too floored to think of any, and that was it. I've used WEB MD for other things so I thought I would check but I'm still confused, VERY uninformed, and I have to tell you, very scared at this point. I'm totally on my own here so please forgive my asking so many questions......but I need help FAST.......
