Just signed up so am saying Hi !!
Im 50 yrs old and have been suffering with my shoulder for years and had been diagnosed with a frozen shoulder 10 ish years ago which was treated and seemed to disappear,then around 2 years ago the pain / stiffness returned this time though diagnosed as a shoulder impingement ? .
Then one evening i noticed a slight tremble in my lower arm around 18 months ago ,which would kind of come and go and when i tried to make people (inc Doctor) see it i just couldn’t make my arm shake,the doctor said its probably a benign essential tremor and not a lot can be done,so its got progressively worse and my doctor refered me to a nuerologist,who seems to think my symptoms are somewhere in the middle of PD and ET but she thinks its more than likely PD .
So ive been booked for a Brain dopamein Transporter test and the nuclear department of my local hospital and am terrified never spent a night in hospital never broke a bone ,
can anyone tell me what to expect ?
