Hello and hope you are all doing OK
Start of the journey for me, wife not yet officially diagnosed but symptoms, in my eyes, show that she definitely has early onset PD (mid 40's). Has had CT scan which showed nothing out of the ordinary and is waiting to see consultant in around a months time. She is not a great user of the net hence me being here, also the lack of movement in her hands means typing is now difficult.
Symptoms are tremor, started in left side but now often both, stiffness left side, balance problems, left side limp, hands now very weak and slow, facial 'stillness' and increased tiredness. No longer drives as finds gear changes difficult and has reduced hours at work due to fatigue. Symptoms started with the left side stiffness/balance issues around a couple of years ago. She has other problems which have given her balance issues so we sort of didnt notice that other things were getting worse and put it down to her original problem. Increasing anxiety and depression led to a visit to the doc who pretty soon pointed us in the directions of a parkinsonian disorder.
So that's about it for now, looking for some positive vibes, wife thinks she will be 'back to normal' once she gets on medication, and I very much hope that is the case. But life is not looking so positive at the moment, I thank the lord for prozac :-)
