Hello everyone. I’m just back from the hospital after being diagnosed with PD although the doctor says it’s benign tremulous Parkinson’s. I’m 53 and I would say have been very gradually getting worse over the last 2-3 years and so I promised my wife at the start of 2018 I would go to the doctor. After referral and various scans, a recent DAT Scan finally confirmed that it wasn’t Essential Tremor. Not sure how I feel at the moment - obviously disappointed I have PD but on the other hand I feel better I have a diagnosis and so ending any uncertainty and my symptoms could be a lot worse although I appreciate it’s likely that will change over time.
I’m here to learn from the collective wisdom of the group and so I thank you in advance for welcoming me.
