Is it YOPD?

I'm 35. Have had RLS and tremors for quite some time. Lots of muscle, joint pain. Being treated for costochondritis, back pain sciatica and Panic Disorder which I take Lexapro and Xanax for. Finally mentioned to the new doc about my restless legs. She asked about history of MS or PD in the family. I don't know my family that well. She prescribed Mirapex. It stopped my rls the first night. It has also stopped my hand tremors...does this mean it is probably young onset Parkinson's?

Dear Orbitalbliss
I do not think your RLS doctor would have missed the tremor in the right hand, so doubt you have PD. However, I would contact her with this question.
