Hi, I was diagnosed the day before Christmas Eve, 23/12/2016. Been experiencing symptons for last three months so went to GP's. Referred to local Hosp and seen quickly.
Still reeling, decided to ignore for Xmas but have started on meds on Boxing Day. No nausea as yet (thank God)!
I am 57, a Teaching Assistant in local primary school. Am married and have an 18 yr old son.Hubby poleaxed by diagnosis, so am being very supportive of him. Trying to keep it from family until tremor in right arm more under control. Understand that a positive attitude, exercise, diet and adjustment to life can be beneficial - so suggestions welcome!
Got so many questions; do I tell my employer, is it normal for deterioration to be slow, are meds effective and so on.........
