After a summer of scans and tests, I was told today that I have atypical parkinson's - I'm not entirely sure what the implications of this are. I'm being referred to a movement disorder clinic but this will take about four months to happen. In the meantime I've been given Rotigotine patches (and Domperidone to take for five days first).
I thought I was prepared for the diagnosis but it still knocked me for six, and I keep feeling hot and panicky.
Yesterday my partner lost his job so it's a rubbish week so far - and it's only Tuesday.
