Hi all! I’m currently being evaluated for PD. I admit I do seem to have some of the classic signs (stiff right wrist, slight lightheadedness, and a tremor that only shows itself when I exercise) but they are very subtle. My Neurologist said he could almost tell by looking at me when he walked in (facial expression and reduced eye blink rate) and after an hour long exam he’s 90% sure that’s what I have.
Next week I go in for a DaTscan. Normally a person would hope and pray the scan would be negative. BUT everything I’ve been reading from Dr. Google points to a negative actually meaning I might have something similar to PD but WORSE!!! (MSA, ALS, etc…) All this uncertainty has left me a nervous wreck. Not sure what to think… Thoughts???
