Good morning Peter

It’s so so nice to hear that the are people here to help, listen to us. I didn’t want to get Tommy so worried, but I have taken advics and mamged to push to get my appointment push forward and hopefully they can give me more clear answers to what is work with, regards the scan I was diagnosed Last year after having Isaacs syndrome for years, than as soon as they started me on the medication first with the patches but my skim couldn’t take it, so started the tables, and was doing well, than the last 5 months not sure what has changed but my body has started to hurt a lot more, with no able to do anything so days at all, with a hand full of sleeping too much or for days on end without sleep at all. So in they did the data scan, that came negative, I had my Hosptail appointment at hospital and my doctor said it happens sometimes, and the fact that I was responding to the medication in a good way, so he said he can still say I had PD, than the next Hosptail I went only to find out that my doctor had left, and a new one will take over my folder. That’s when she told me I don’t have PD and said at your next appointment I will reduce your meds, me and my husband told her why and what the last year has been like, she just said we will have to see. So as I have moved homes and couldn’t get to the same Hosptail I asked to change doctors which she really didn’t want, and I got my PD nurse to ask to do that’s dont know. So now I am in this pain and my PD nursery and help lines they have got the appointment broght forward.so you see it’s this what I am going though, oh on top of this a few people who I know have fibromyalgia, and now telling them of the way I feel apart from the sleep thing the pain level sort of sound like me on some days, I know that sometimes when you are looking for answer everything fits and somethings nothing does .so you see I want to get of the unknown bus now, thank you for taking time out for me too

All the best Raz

Good morning Raz 1
I’m so glad you called the NHS last night and managed to get your appointment brought forward (good news indeed)
No-one should suffer as much as you have and be left to think about a change in diagnosis on your own it’s just too frustrating.
Raz please don’t think I worry too much as you are now a member of our club and in here we care for each other .
That is just what we do!
I hope you get what you need from your new appointment
Tommy :pill::pill:

Hello Raz,on 31 December I had a n appointment with my PD consultant,and he said to me that he finds it really hard timers I have PD,then he put me on Melatonin for my lucid dreams and restless legs at night,(what a load of for about the Melatonin) they made me worse,then on 10/01/2019 I made an appointment to have a word with my PD nurse,she said first don’t look or walk and talk like a person with PD so I’m thinking like I’ve been wrongly diagnosed,what do you think?,bye.

Hi Wag

Well I am sorry that you are having these problems? But from what you have said so fare I think that the doctors and nurse should be seeing you so more, as if your nurse says that she see no signs of PD too. But one the other side I know a person just like that no sighs what so ever, she walks and talks , and shows no sign of any discomfort at all. But she has had PD from the aga of 30, so you see some times when someone says they can’t see it there may be a really reason why. In your case do you have any other symptoms? I still have not had my appoint to talk about what I have. But I. Must say I feel my body slowing down , more pains and most of all having other tests from my hands are arms . Please let me know how you get on.
Raz
