I ve recently been diagnosed with parkinson s but wonder if I might have nph?

Why do you wonder? Check out these links: http://www.lifenph.com http://www.ninds.nih.gov/disorders/normal_pressure_hydrocephalus/normal_pressure_hydrocephalus.htm http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/000752.htm http://www.webmd.com/brain/normal-pressure-hydrocephalus.
Neurology Evaluation. There are some similarities in some of the symptoms particularly if it is early in the course of the disease. Also it is possible to have both parkinson's and nph. A careful evaluation by a neurologist will help to figure this out. For example, the ct/mri scan is very important to see the size of the ventricles. If they are normal, it is not likely to be nph.
Likely not. Nph is a problem with flow of cerebrospinal fluid, and is associated with cognitive loss, apractic gait, and urinary lack of control. Parkinson's in contrast demonstrates a tremor at rest, increased muscle tone and different short strepped gait. Talk to your doctor, if the meds do not benefit you, as other diagnoses might be present.
