I have a doctors appointment next week and after getting nowhere with other treatments and consultations I’m not sure how to approach the “maybe its PD” discussion as I don’t want to seem like I know it all which I clearly don’t.
Many symptoms I have have been going on for years, all of which I put down to being T2 diabetic, some have been treated by the doctor others not.
Shoulder pain (originally treated with physio) went away after 2 years but is back now.
Constipation been given various things by doc but still present after 3 years.
Swallowing difficulty again about 3 years saw doc but they found nothing, getting food stuck and choking is a real issue, last time almost needed an ambulance. Happened again today too
Burning Sensation in the feet this is relatively new about 6 months leads me onto next point
Sleep or lack of really struggle to sleep have done for years have been prescribed tablets but nothing helps
Restless Leg sometimes it just wants to move all the time very annoying
Urination get up on average 3-5 times a night (also doesn’t help sleep) plus can get leakage occur on occasions
Balance Issues have to hold onto something when standing, been like it for years
Vision Issues blurred vision first thing in the morning this is more recent though
Leg Cramps daily occurrence for last few years doc gave me vitamin D no different, even get cramp walking during the day but usually at night.
Drooling especially at night
As you can see I have been treated for many things, no one has ever mentioned PD (was aware of it though as my nan had it) it was only this year when I had the odd hand tremor that made me think twice.
Just don’t want to waste doctors time and go in and give him my thoughts, plus in all honesty it scares the daylight out of me. My wife is pushing that I go and I can see her point of view and booked an appointment but not looking forward to it…ignorance is bliss
