DadDiagnosed, I have signs of early onset.

My father (74 next month) got his first Rx today. I have been showing signs that concern me in regard to early onset Parkinson's. Could use some insight from those more experienced in these situations. We live togther, so I can handle his needs, but am worried about my progression if I too have Parkinson's. His wife still works, and has titanium rods in her back, so can't help with upcoming labor aspects, but she is an MD, so an excellent resource. I'd rather not add to her burdens with my questions until i have a better understanding of what the progression looks like for my dad, anb quite likley, me.
Help?
