Hi im a 46 year old mum of 2 with a grandaughter too. Recently diagnosed after a datscan and several pd symptoms. Started on simenet which is helping.
Saw my gp today who says neuro has said i have parkinsonism and dystonia yet he told me it was parkinsons and dystonia. Then gp looked at datscan results and said must be parkinsons.
Im totally confused now as to my diagnosis, is thete a difference between the 2 or is parkinsonism just a general term?
Any thoughts would be much appreciated!!
