Drumming and Parkinsons

I am seeing a neurologist to see whether or not I have Parkinson's disease. I don't want to stop drumming. Is anyone here aware of drummers who have had Parkinsons?

The two musicians I know who were diagnosed both moved on to stage/studio/sound. They still play occasionally, but no longer do it professionally as their symptoms are about as predictable as the weather.

Side note: Both now have MJ scripts and consume more than I (an every day for the last 25 years MJ smoker) am comfortable seeing any human imbibe. I don't know if it's because it does a good job of relieving the symptoms, or if both of these gents simply got carried away with the herb.

They're around.

Offcourse these things vary in severity.

In any case, drumming is supposed to help.

You hav no diagnosis yet and I'm certainly not a doctor, but if CBD is legal around you it's a good thing to be aware off and try out before getting on heavier prescription stuff.
