I have been in the system for the last year or so, my GP refer me to the memory clinic due to ongoing problems I had been having trouble learning lines for plays and Pantomime or lyrics for songs. This had never been a problem for me until around 18 months ago
Taking all of the cognitive tests and the like my consultant said she said I had early Lewy bodies dementia! Because of my age (53) she was referring again, this time to a professor.
Scan after scan, slept monitoring and more pushing, prodding and a thousand questions I received a letter. My DAT scan showed changes in keeping with Parkinsonism Syndrome. So who knew!
Last Wednesday my GP started me on Clonazepam as suggested by the professor to help, with my REM (RBD) and informed me to tell DVLA. I now have to wait to see my professor sometime next year and from the DVLA. I am not looking forward to that as I hold my HGV class 1 licence. My GP said to come back and see him if I feel I need to!
Is this how it is/has been with everyone? My wife is beside herself, bless her. I am just getting on with things, no time to slow down and worry about this right now, as they say the show must go on. Even though I understand life may never be the same again.
Sorry to go on, thanks for taking the time to read my ramblings. I feel better already.
