Hello, I visited my consultant on October 24th in Sheffield, who confirmed I have Parkinson’s.
The Parkinson’s Website has been most helpful, and I’ve now informed the DVLA about my condition so I wonder what the consequence of that will be. I’m driving without issues at the moment.
A friend of mine told me that I should ask for an MRI Scan, but should I speak with the Parkinson’s Nurse about this? I’m wondering what it might show?
My consultant thinks I’ve been affected with PD for about 2 years now, and I’ve just turned 60. I’ve been prescribed Madopar and I think I’m beginning to see some benefit, but it’s early days yet.
I’ve joined a local Gym and bought an electric bike to ensure I keep myself mobile, and I’ve been recommended to take Pilates, at the Gym which I’m attending.
Is there a group of PD patients operating in South Yorkshire? I’ve joined this forum, but I’m wondering how I might meet fellow patients near to me.
