I am a 73 year old female. I have been diagnoised by two nueros with PD about 4 years ago. I am now taking ropinirole HCL 3 mg, 4 times a day. I really don't recognize the PD symptons that I read about in myself except the tremors in my hands. I also have some cclumsey moments and have fallen a few times. My last nuero appointment was 2 weeks ago. The Dr. is now questioning the diagnosy of PD. He talked about essential tremors. He did not take me off the ropinirole. If I don't have PD should I still be on that medication? Should I seek a third opinion? Or just wait to see what developes next? I feel very silly about the whole thing.

Please don't feel silly for being concerned about your health! It's so important to be proactive when dealing with a serious health issue.

Please ask your doctor about the medication (never stop, start or change the dose of a prescription without speaking with your medical professional).

If you don't feel comfortable with the answers, other opinions are appropriate. Give your doctor's office a call today!

Can you tell me when The blood test will be available? If it already out what is the name. I want to request this test from my neuroligist.
Haylen_WebMD_Staff replied to granbaker's response:
It's not out and from the article, it looks like it might be a long way from adoption...For now, the best route is to work closely with your doctor to diagnose and treat your symptoms.
