At the moment I see a Parkinsons Specialist but I have noticed that most people on the site see a Neurologist. I have never seen a Neurologist and wonder if I should ask to see one. I am not sure what the difference between a Parkinsons Specialist and a Neurologist is. As the Unit I attend comes under Department for the Elderly, I do not think of myself as elderly, but I appreciate that I am, I wonder whether I should ask for a referral.
I have never been offered any scans. I was diagnosed by methods such as touching finger to my nose. walking, tremor etc. I know I have Parkinsons, but wonder whether I am getting the best care available. How do I find a good Neurologist, but more to the point is is worth it?
