I’m 45 years old and this summer i have done datscan and come out as mormal.I’ve been to 8 neurologists who all say ok and but the symptoms persist. 2 years ago I felt pain in my neck and shoulder after I looked it up with an orthopedist I did what was needed for the neck. This year 2 years later the shoulder pains continue also elbow pain and hip pains all on the right side.early mornings when I wake up I have pains in the high wais.I have been seeing violent strange dreams often for example yesterday i saw that i was attack and fight,i was punching my mom.i also have frequent urination and light tremor in my lower lip when I smile awkwardly or when I’m at the dentist. I don’t have movement problems or balance issues, but I’ve had constipation problems since I was 20.could all be early sign of Parkinson’s ?my second question is if with all these symptoms the datscan would come out correct.
Welcome to our community forum. First and foremost we would encourage you to reach out to your GP and communicate as clearly as possible your recent difficulties. Parkinson’s has a range of symptoms it shares with other conditions, so diagnosis without the proper examinations are particularly challenging. Please have a look at our website for more information. This is a good place to start: What is Parkinson's? | Parkinson's UK. You are also welcome to reach out to our free and confidential helpline on 0808 800 0303. Our advisors are friendly and knowledgeable and always happy to help.
With our best wishes,
I omly want to know if datscan detects the non-motor symptom
