About three years ago, my consultant arranged for me to have a CAT scan and a DAT scan, which indicated I had a form of Parkinson's. One specialist opinion was that I have Parkinson's (PD), on the basis of the other thought I had MSA because of my symptoms and scan results.
This is not the typical PD, in that I have no tremor. Medications such as Sinemet do not seem to alleviate my symptoms. These are difficulty with balance and walking, and urinary incontinence. I find writing and typing much harder than three years ago.
Generally I can read, and understand what's going on in the world around me, but my lack of mobility is a real nuisance.
