I bit the bullet and saw my Doctor Wednesday 3/11/2015. We are doing blood work to check my thyroid and she has put me on Lexapro (not too thrilled about this) to try and get the tremors to stop and to calm my anxiety. I am a bit annoyed by the visit, only because at first I felt like I wasn't being taken seriously. I guess after I have taken the Lexapro for three months, if those few symptoms out of the (what feels like a million) symptoms, don't subside or stop, they will then want to do a MRI and a CT scan. So now I guess for those of you who were diagnosed early, what was your experience? What steps did your doctor take?
Rigidity in my joints and muscles
Tremors in my hands, face and legs
Terrible balance ( I stand up I lose my balance, while walking if I suddenly turn I lose my balance ect.)
Dizziness when standing
Trouble communicating at times
Forgetting words and forgetting how to spell
Seeing words and thinking they aren't spelled right when they are like my brain doesn't recognize the word.
Walking seems difficult. I feel like my legs and feet are heavy and weighed down.
More and more I am noticing new symptoms. Any and all insight and knowledge and your experiences are all greatly appreciated.
