I've just been diagnosed with atypical parkinsonism by a specialist after an examination and put on Sinemet straight away. Im waiting for blood test results and to have an MRI scan to rule out other things/confirm this type of PD.
I have to wait 8 weeks to find out for sure and wonder if anyone has ever been misdiagnosed for atypical parkinsonisms or PD as I am trying to research my collection of symptoms just to be sure. I've looked at MS (my doctor thought this) but Im wondering if a long term thyroid imbalance or something else could be causing my symptoms?
Im not clutching at straws, I just want to be sure I'm getting the right medication and 8 weeks is a long time to wait for confirmation. Although I must have shown the right symptoms, I now want to check that everything else however remote has been ruled out.
Thanks for reading this even if you can't help.
