Hello, I am 71 and live in Lancashire, England this is my first post and I am hoping to get some information and help. I had a consultation with my GP two weeks ago because I had a chin tremor. He thought maybe essential tremor but has since written to me to say after he had done some reading he was now sending me to a Neurologist as this is an early sign of Parkinsons.
I am so worried and have cried every day, I know there are a lot of people much worse off than me but this has been such a shock. Apparently there is a reasonably long waiting list according to the letter from my Dr. Should I try and pay for a private consultation, don’t have any medical insurance so probably cost quite a lot. Does anyone have a recommendation for a good Consultant?
Did anyone else on the forum start with a chin tremor and how long does it take to progress to other symptoms. Dr did some tests with me and said I had no other symptoms of PD.
I hope someone can help and thank you, Heather
