Hello Teapot, sorry you've had to wait so long for a reply.
Pain (in retrospect) was probably my first symptom. I self-diagnosed a frozen shoulder perhaps a couple of years before seeing a neuro. And spent the second year with a burning sensation between my shoulder blades. All pretty much relieved by the meds (though just might be creeping up again . . .)
Ohs and other carers are indeed rocks. I am in awe of mine who I treat abominably at times. Let's hear it for them!
And finally, if I may say so, while I understand the why me stage of grieving, try not to stay there too long. There's even less of an answer to that than there's a cure for PD!
post early, post often, we'll all like to hear from you Teapot (milk no sugar, please).
