Hi, Dave here, aged 48. had a shake for a while and was put down to an essential tremor until April 2020 when a specialist that works a couple of days a week at my DRs saw a red flag and Parkinson’s came to light. Propranolol was prescribed to help with shakes. Then I started having problems with swallowing but that is under control now with the help of speech and languages. I was lucky in that respect as no one could call me as I wasn’t diagnosed at hospital but they set it up so I could ring them.
Yesterday was my hospital appointment, outcome is PD and Sinemet 25/100 is the prescription.
In my head I knew but yesterday made it real.
