New and just wanted to say hey!


#1

Hey everyone, my names Kat, I'm 24 and I am legitimately concerned that I have early onset parkinsons. Problem is that no doctor I have seen will take me seriously because of my age. I will be posting more in the 'Symptoms' section but I just wanted to say hello to everyone and I hope that you are having a good day.

Hi KatB,

Parky is no respecter of age as anyone at any age can get it, although rare in young people. Keep an eye on your symptoms as Parky gets tp you in various forms. I would suggest that if you can't convince your doctor, ask for a 2nd opinion and get referred to a specialist.

And by the way..hi!
