Customer Question
I have a question for...
I have a question for a neurologist. Is it possible to have a resting tremor with Progressive Supranuclear Palsy? And vice versa is it possible to have blurry vision and walking / balance problems that are progressing rapidly if you have Parkinson's Disease? I know that PSP is commonly misdiagnosed for PD but is it possible to have both? i was diagnosed with Parkinson's 3 years ago at age 49. But vision and balance /walking problems problems have me wondering if it's PSP.

Hello,

It is rare for patients with PSP to have a resting tremor. It would be highly unlikely for one patient to have both PSP and PD.

If you are on medication for PD, blurred vision may be one of side effects. I would make sure you get an ophthalmologic evaluation with a dilated eye exam.

Hope this helps.
