Can someone tell me how Parkinsons is diagnosed?
I saw a neurologist about a month ago and was told I have dystonia, because my head was nodding a bit. I was given injections in the back of my neck, but they didn't stop the nodding, they just made my chin fall onto my chest. I now have a tremor all over, especially in my chest that makes me feel breathless. I suppose I've had it for a while now, but it happened gradually and I didn't notice it. My hands don't tremble, but my right foot does. I've had restless leg syndrome for about seven years, but it is controlled by Pramipexole.
I've been reading the other posts, and someone has written about an internal tremor. that's what I've had for nearly a year but now my family say they can see my shoulders tremble.
How do I know if this is Parkinsons? I really do need some advise please. I have another appt. with the neurologist Dec. 19th. but that seems a long time to wait.
