Of course you’re worried @panda7. When you have concerns, a month can seem like a long time to wait for answers. Hopefully, the members here will be able to share their stories with you and offer you support.

There’s a very good article here which talks about the difference between tiredness and fatigue, very common Parkinson’s symptoms. Certainly, the doctor will be able to suggest medications and coping techniques to help with this.

Don’t forget that, while you wait, you can speak our helpline advisers on 0808 800 0303. They are there to listen and offer resources that could prove very helpful. At the same time, don’t forget to take care of yourself. Caring for someone can be physically and mentally challenging so do check out these articles for carers..

Take care and keep us informed about how your appointment goes,
