Hi all, I am A 56 year old male. about a year and a half ago, I noticed that my right hand was shaking a bit, I didn't think much about it, since I work a physical job and am often fatigued at the end of the day. It has progressively gotten really irritating, and I finally told my GP about it. He recommended a neurologist. Since I just celebrated my one year Anniversary of being Cancer free, (Sqamous cell oropharyneal carcinoma)dubious about the eff
I made an appointment at Mayo, where I was treated for cancer, they did a blood test, MRI, a DAT scan and a neurological test.

I don't know who to talk to, because most people don't need or want to hear me ramble. I've got elephant feet and an elephant on my chest making it difficult to breathe the last few days. I've been trying to pinpoint what's going on, and why I so desperately desire to hear people appreciate me.So I put it in words, to try to express what's going on...Do you love me? Even though I'm weak and...
I was recently diagnosed with young onset Parkinson's at the age of 32. I've revealed to others that I have it. Their responses were that I am too young. They roll their eyes and act like they know everything. I've even had family tell me they dont believe it. I've had 2 opinions and both were the same diagnosis. It's hard enough living with this disease but it makes it harder when people are...
