so the diagnosis of parkinson's is made by history and physical exam for starters.

Each gland still appears to be separated by a thin rim of stroma, therefore these foci are considered as atypical complex hyperplasia.

thank you for all that.
first of all, are you in traverse city, you lucky dawg, what are you complaining about????
just want to know if I need to schedule in person another H & P
NOT complaining just want to live longer:)
I love TC and that is why I moved back
where are you located?
I am stuck in NYC grew up in Michigan in Grosse Ile, and I miss it to death
come back or fly me out I'll be your patient:)
do you operate?
i only get relief temporarily with massage and chiro but then it comes back
no I am a neurologist, I do deal with parkinson's of course, I do a lot of experimental imaging, and to quickly answer your first question, to diagnose parkinson's we now have special scanss
anyway, I'll let you type, I only paid $39 for this interaction:)
ok, I type you read, then you can type back ok?
Cool do you know the name of the special scans? I'll see if they have them in TC?
sure. these are PET scans that use a radioactive tag to look at your dopamine stores.
$5000 I assume
I will send you a webpage of the big place here in NYC that does them
need auth from insurance I assume
medical documentation I assume. Thank you. How much research have you done on Parkinson's, how is the prognosis or life expectancy
My imaging research is not in Parkinson's , it is in drug abuse, but actually we use the same radiotracers because drugs age your brain
Thank you. I'm heading to the chiro to get some temp relief today and my massage therapy friend will give me a myofacial MT tomorrow:) Thanks again. Dr.
Does zoloft age my brain
the scans are expensive, and you would want to have insurance, no doubt
It has helped me a little for only 50 mg per day
zoloft does not age your brain
but your neck pain is probably the cause of your arm weakness
cool, thanks again for your input, I'm on the right healing track I appreciate your online direction look me up if you are ever in TC Beth XXX XXX XXXX you have a condo or place to rest your head:)
and your arm pain
cool good to know
neck pain I see neuro spine all connected strengthen the neck muscles, etc.
hang in there and enjoy the cherry festivals and the bay and all that stuff, get your bike fixed
