Ive recently been undergoing tests for Parkinson's, I've been experiencing symptoms for around a year and after clear mri's and lp, I was referred to the Parkinsons specialist at a near by hospital. I was quite surprised to even hear the work Parkinson's mentioned to be honest. I'm only 30 and didn't even realise it was something that could happen so young. After visiting the specialist and explaining my symptoms, weak arm and leg on right side, loss of right arm swing, stiffness in right side of my mouth and cheek, tremors in right leg, walking with a limp and slowness of movement again on my right side. I've also been suffering with an urge incontinence which wasn't even something I thought was related. The specialist seemed pretty sure it was PD but sent me for a DaTScan because it is still so rare in people my age. The GP contacted me today to say the scan was clear. He wasn't sure what would happen now though. I've got an appointment with the specialist to discuss the results in a week or so.
Im just so frustrated now, although PD isn't an ideal diagnosis aged 30, it was still a relief to feel as though I was finally getting closer to finding out what was wrong with me and now it's like I'm back at square one. I'm just wondering if a clear datscan totally rules out PD?
