Hi my name is James and I'm new to the forum.
I have been experiencing some pretty worrying symptoms for about 2-3 years and recently decided that I need to get it checked properly. these have included sometimes Severe hand + facial + neck tremors even when relaxed or laying down, Difficulty walking (hunched/ feet not responding when walking over uneven surface or curb) , Constipation, Fatigued , Night terrors and severe sweating when sleeping, Forgetting words (this is really worrying and use Google to cover conversation lapse).
My GP was really good and has put me through to a specialist in the next few weeks, but am now really nervous as they have put me on propranolol in the meantime, which doesn't completely stop the tremors apart from making them less severe and definitely hasn't helped the other symptoms. Also makes me really slow and a bit tired.
Basically I might be fine, but everyone is noticing in the last couple of months as I cant hide the symptoms and a work colleague mentioned PD and this group until I have been diagnosed properly as his mum had it...I hadn't even thought of PD until this and used to just laugh it off as "shakey Jim".
I am 30yrs since Sunday and really just looking for advise for when I see the specialist and anything really whilst I try not to sink into the darkness in now what is a waiting game.
Thanks for reading.
