Tomorrow morning I am supposed to report to the gastroenterology specialist at a surgical center for them to do an EGD (also known as esophago-gastro-duodenoscopy). So nothing to eat or drink after midnight.

I worried about doing anything medical until after the virus scare is gone. But the Dr. says the procedure is deemed needful and is approved. I wrote about my esophageal spasms in my post on March 17th. My father and twin sister have both had the procedure… apparently they will put a balloon down my throat and inflate it, to stretch where the constriction is. I will be asleep through the process. I don’t know why it makes me so nervous.

In May of 2018, I was diagnosed with Parkinson's. After researching, I believe the symptoms began to manifest themselves years prior to last year. The purpose for my blog is to share what I have learned (with an index) to save others time as they seek for answers about, symptoms, therapies [and alternative things to try], tools I use, Parkinsonisms, recipes, strategies, clinical studies, words of encouragement or just enjoy the photos or humor.
