By chance when reading a Forum reply I heard of Benign Tremulous Parkinsonism (BTP) where limited PD symptoms are very slow progressing and generally are not responsive to levedopa. Local enquiries about it have mainly drawn blanks so I wonder whether there are others who seem to have the characteristics eg. tremor at rest but mild non-tremor symptoms and only minor stooping or arm swinging. What articles I have found talk about 8 or more years with little symptom progression.
