Q. What to expect from a Parkinson's patient? My 70 year old father has been diagnosed with Parkinson's. What will he be like from now on, what to expect?

A. Some of the symptoms of Parkinson's disease are:
• Trembling of hands, arms, legs, jaw and face

Q. Curious as to what to expect with menopause

A. Menopause symptoms are caused due to rapid decline in hormonal levels- especially estrogen. You should expect to experience a variety of symptoms, that may be unpleasant such as hot flashes, palpitations, night sweats, vaginal atrophy (drying), skin drying, slight decrease in sexual drive, mood changes, urgency in urination and more. Not all women have these symptoms, and usually woman don't have all the symptoms.

However, I don't think that the approach should what should you worry about, but rather you may consult your doctor to see what you can do to control the disease and maybe feel better about it.

Take care,
