Issue 11: Discussion with a Neurologist – Part 1

May 15, 2024

Welcome to The Climb, your weekly journey with Lifecycle Sherpa, where we explore Parkinson’s Disease, its symptoms, treatments, tips, techniques, and build a supportive and knowledgeable community.

This week’s trail leads us to…a discussion with a Neurologist who specializes in Movement Disorders.

Question: After receiving a Parkinson’s diagnosis, what do you recommend for your patients to do next?

Answer: I always tell my patients: ‘Go home and process this. You’re going to hear a lot of information, not all of it is going to apply to you → focus on YOUR information, YOUR symptoms, YOUR feelings, YOUR questions, and write down everything you can. Then when you come back, you will know what to tell me and what questions you have. Write it up!’

“Parkinson’s is a just a name for the symptoms you are having. It helps us determine which course of medications and treatments to offer. You are still you. DO MORE! BE ACTIVE! BE INDEPENDENT!”
