Lower Body PD?

Lower Body PD?

My doctor recently said I have Lower Body PD. Have not heard that term before--has anyone else?

I think I have the same lower body PD, mostly bcuse my arms and hands do not have any tremors and seem to be not affected by parkinson. it is my legs which are weak and are stiff, that I believe cause my balance and walking problems. Hope & pray that your PD symptoms are kinder to you.

Definitely lower body (I'm his wife and I was there too). The comment was based on the fact that he has virtually no tremors and passes all the examination tests with flying colors.
