I'm Keith and have been newly diagnosed.
Been working as an aircraft engineer since I left school, which was a few years ago and I'm determined to keep doing it as long as I can. Currently self employed performing surveys on airliners and such for leasing companies. This entails quite a bit of travel. It was during a trip to the States earlier this year when I noticed that my handwriting was getting smaller and very untidy. At the same time I was having difficulty using the computer mouse; I didn't seem to have enough dexterity in my fingers. I then noticed that my right arm wasn't swinging with the same cadence as my left. So after Googling these "symptoms" they pointed to me having Parkinson's.
I went to see my GP and then a neurologist at Salford Royal who confirmed my thoughts.
My immediate family and friends are all aware now and are being supportive which is great. And I'm continuing to work.
I'd like to engage with the rest of the forum to share experiences and life in general.
