THINGS TO THINKS ABOUT RIGHT NOW

INVOLUNTARY, ERRATIC MOVEMENTS OF THE BODY (DYSKINESIA)

David Verdery a PROadvocate

I have always pumped my knees up and down,

especially when I’m watching a game.

And when my team gets another first down,

I nearly go insane.

But lately, my knees and now fingers

are starting to twitch when I’m reading.

The TV is off, but the tension lingers

and I wonder where all this is leading.

I went to my primary doctor

and told him what was happening.

He said it might be essential tremors or

maybe Parkinson’s is advancing.

He continued, I hope that it’s not P.D.,

Because that’s something you live with

for the rest of your life. Let’s see,

I’ll write a referral to Dr. Smith.

He’s a Movement Disorder Specialist who

has had special training in-residence

and has the remarkable ability to

know if you have Parkinson’s.

Another source of information and support

is Parkinson’s Resource Organization.

Jo Rosen founded her group in 1990 to report

all the information from across the nation.

Their Mission:

“Working so no one is isolated because of Parkinson’s.”
