I visit my neurologist every few months. To gauge my PD progression, he performs some standard movement tests (eg; checking gait, tapping pointer finger with thumb etc.). I find them to be a bit subjective. Do you think your doctor can easily discern if your disease is progressing when he/she performs these tests?
