Dr. Phil, MD :

do you have a tremor?

Dr. Phil, MD :

like a hand tremor?

JACUSTOMER-lc1us7qa- :

slightly at times

Dr. Phil, MD :

okay

Dr. Phil, MD :

any family history of parkinsons?

JACUSTOMER-lc1us7qa- :

none whatso ever

Dr. Phil, MD :

okay, tremor and mouth watering could be a sign of parkinsons

Dr. Phil, MD :

you are on a lot of medicine so one of these could be the cause but it is hard to say

Dr. Phil, MD :

I think a neurologist should check you for Parkinson's disease

Dr. Phil, MD :

If I had to guess which meds could cause it I would say lyrica or cymbalta

JACUSTOMER-lc1us7qa- :

You don't think continuing chewing of nicorettes would have any thing to do with it, to jump toParkinsonsons so quikckly with little history seems pretty radical.

Dr. Phil, MD :

I have seen many patients that chew nicorette and none of them drool

Dr. Phil, MD :

However, I will give you that it is possible

Dr. Phil, MD :

You had already considered that so I was giving other options to explore

Dr. Phil, MD :

tremor and drooling (sialorrhea) are common with PD

Dr. Phil, MD :

are you there?

Dr. Phil, MD :

hello?
