Because of my finger tremor and changes in handwriting my general practitioner thought that I need further testing. She said that I might have Parkinson's disease. I am 72 years old. What tests are used to diagnose Parkinson's disease? Please, if you know, tell me because I am very afraid of the doctors.

To diagnose Parkinson's you first need to see a neurologist. This kind of doctors treat diseases like yours. He is going to exam you. That means that he will ask you to do some things whit your arms and legs. After this he may knock you few times with his rubber hammer. And finally, he may won't to take some pictures of your head. That method is called CAT scan.
