I've been reading this forum for a while now, well for the last few months on and off,I've been unwell for nearly a year now or i should say i've noticed i have been unwell for a year but in truth i think i have been unwell for a lot longer but only everything has started too come together in the last year.
I've had a tremor for a while, it started as something barely noticeable in one hand and i took no notice, just one of those things but then work noticed and so did customers too until i couldn't function properly in my job, it was difficult too hold and manipulate things,and i had a tremor just doing nothing at all as well and now in both hands,Not only that i slowed down in everything i did in work and out of it, the simplest of things suddenly became the most difficult when they should of been easy, i'd been doing those things at work and in play for years.
Walking,angling,photography were out of reach and sometimes my memory of people and familar and how i used too do things escapes me as well which adds too the frustration.
Things with n.h.s. through my illness have been rather slow in a year, in another week i have only my second appointment with the neuro so i haven't got too a actual diagnosis as of yet but he did say on my previous visit 'explicitly' the chance of being 'young onset' which is why i have been reading this page to educate myself about parkinsons(and all the strange acronyms) and a insight on how it effects every day people who suffer it even if nothing is set in stone for myself.
I do feel even though i don't have it confirmed yet, reading there could be worse things too have and in a way i do have something very wrong with myself and in a way if is parkinsons it would be a relief too be told i do. not only too know what i'm fighting each day and night but too get on with Life.
