Hi, my problems only started a few months ago, well that is when i started to notice anyway. All the clinical tests were done a few weeks ago and have received a letter from my consultant. The main paragraph is as follows........." On examination he is thin,his voice was hoarse. He walked with a stoop and I observed a reduced blink frequency. While his stride was normal within his gait his left arm swing was absent.There was marked rigidity on examining the left arm, most prominent on the left but also present to a mild degree on the right. There was no significant observable tremor today but very mild bradykinesia. My impression was one of parkinsonism, but given the rapidity of onset and significant signs i would like to exclude a structural leshion in the first instance and have therefore organised an MRI scan of the Brain. If this is normal, given his young age and atypical presentation i think a DATSCAN would be helpful" I obviously have looked at all these factors on the internet and just get more confused! Any input, advice would be much appreciated.
