I was diagnosed with Parkinson's last year due to a DAT scan when they were actually looking for the cause of another physical issue that ended up having nothing to do with Parkinson's. I really had no reason to think I had Parkinson's before the scan. So I actually had a second, third, and eventually fourth opinions before I really believed it. The doctors all said they saw things I did that indicated Parkinson's and all said the reason they saw them was because they were trained professionals. However, they didn't agree with each other on what they saw, which just added to my skepticism. The one thing they seemed to agree on is just that I don't swing one of my arms much when I walk. So I'm 51 with no huge symptoms. But I went to the hospital recently with a nasty case of pneumonia. When they got me up to start walking around, my balance wasn't too hot. So they blamed it all on the Parkinson's. I may be in denial, but I want to blame it more on the pneumonia and laying around too long in a hospital bed. I guess I can't really argue when four doctors say I have Parkinson's, but I'm just wondering how others might have dealt with some of the more emotional factors with their diagnosis, especially if you don't really feel like you have it. Thanks.
