Dr. Bob :

Do you have a tremor? Problems with your gait or balance? Do you have any difficulty initiating movements or moving more slowly than before?

Dr. Bob :

These are some of the features of Parkinsons. The diagnosis is made based on history and physical exam.

Dr. Bob :

I would suggest you ask to see a neurologist. While unlikely to be PD, he can check you for this and get you started on the appropriate medication, if necessary.
