I am 76 years old and seem to be experiencing systems of Parkinson.
I had a bad fall and hit my head very hard, (blood on brain, etc)
I have been advised to find a neurologist with a lot of experience with Parkinson that might have encountered this type situtation. That such a fall can cause reactions similar to Parkinson.
I have searched and searched and can not find such.

Maybe your primary doctor could recommend a neurologist. Or the Parkinson’s websites might have resources you can tap into for your city.
My husband lucked out with the referral he got from his primary dr. He’s the one that questioned his tremors and then followed up with tests etc. His primary dr never said anything though, even when I questioned his hand tremors. Good luck with your search.
You could be having damage that has not healed from your fall. I would go to a neurologist of your choice and see if you have post traumatic concussion syndrome. It takes a long time to heal from that kind of fall. How long has it been since you had your fall? You might just have to give it more time. If you do not get the answers you are looking for I would go to a brain injury center for an assessment.
Either get a referral for a neurologist from your GP or look online for a Movement Disorder Specialist. They are neurologists who specialize in movement disorders like Parkinson's and may have a better grasp of more recent research etc. than a general neurologist. Since you are in Dallas, there should be several to choose from.
