Diagnosed At 47


#1

Hi all,

As per title, I was diagnosed at 47. Had shoulder issues going back 3 years which were put down to something else, then my arm stopped swinging when I walked and here I am.

Cheers

Hi Keith,

I’m feeling quite positive, my symptoms have been going on for 10+ years and I don’t get a bad tremor so fingers crossed.

We including myself do and will have bad days
But our condition is only as bad as we let it
A positive frame of mind is a good headstart.
We all react diffrently but we all find our own
But i know there are others here whom i can chat with on days i cant find it
Take care ny friend

Diagnosed at 52 after symptoms for 3 year. Tremor in right arm and slow movement if right arm. Still at work and excercising to reduce symptoms.
I have decided to fight Parky all the time. I did an ultra marathon in the summer and swim most days.

Keep smiling.
