I am depressed, frightened and terrified. No diagnosis but told to be thinking of PD. Hand very shaky, thumb goes non-stop. Cramps in two fingers with all fingers going rigid. Cramps in lower arm (back of arm) extreme pain (I think due to constant twitches). Dystonia?
Just want a diagnosis. Have to wait 8 months for tests. 4 Months to see neurologist again, meanwhile I'm just LEFT alone to consider the worst. PD nurse on helpline good but the minute I put phone down I'm terrified again.
I am tearful and very frightened. Things are happening fast. Noticed upper arm cramp today. First time.
Will I ever get my PhD finished at this rate. So terrified can't concentrate.
