Hi Daffy, thanks. Yes about half the internet is full of 'rubbish' and you can read totally contradictory things about anything and everything.
I try not to think of it when bedtime comes, but usually it makes it's presence known more then.
I am hoping to see a Parkinson's Nurse in the near future. I never actually suspected Parkinson's. I had problems with my thumb a few years ago and couldn't use it so asked to have a cortisone injection. Sometime since then my thumb started 'shaking' (which now sometimes affects my hand and arm) and I just thought it had touched a nerve or something like that and shrugged it off. But both doctor and neurologist knew differently.
I too now suspect that other things may not have been just 'getting older' or 'post menopausal'.
What worries me the most is the uncertainty of how it will progress.
