Hi everyone over the last few days I have been visiting this site regularly to try and determine if I too have symptoms of PD.
Hopefully you are going to tell me that I don,t but whether you do or not this forum is without a doubt a great support for those that do have PD.
Having recently had a blood test because for nearly a year now I have had what I call a cotton wool feeling in my toes I have to attend an appointment tomorrow, yes I did say tomorrow which is a Sunday,with a neurologist which has set the hares running in my mind and they are going to give me a EMG test.
I am sure you are all aware of the scenario in that since being given this appointment within such a short time frame I am trying to find out via Goggle what I might possibly be suffering from.
I initially thought that it might be diabetes but after buying a blood sugar level monitor I have ruled that out.
MS does not seem to be the problem which brings me to PD.
Other than having the cotton wool feeling in my toes I do at times feel very tired and suffer severe headaches.I also have at times stinging in my eyes and suffer from insomnia.
I am sure that the majority of us on here do not have medical qualifications so I am not looking for a specific diagnosis but what I would like to ask is whether any of this symptoms could indicate an early onset of PD.
I am by the way aged 63 but even at my age there is still so much more that I want to do.
Once I have any form of result from my appointment tomorrow pleased rest assured that I will let you all now as who nows someone else at some time may undergo the experience I am having and this will help.
I should also add that I have no arm tremors but I do have neck and shoulder aches at times.
