I have young onset Parkinson’s disease and have had this diagnosed now for 2 years. At the time of my initial PD diagnosis I also had tingling and was extremely fatigued.
I have right sided stiffness, rigidity and slowness and respond to the parkinsons meds. I definitely have YOPD.
However, I have recently suffered from what has been diagnosed as Bell’s palsy. I had right eye drop, persistant eye twitch, tingling face and right side of tongue. In addition, I have started with bladder issues- urgency incontinance, where I have voided my bladder before I could make the loo. I am exhausted beyond words. My pd specialist has referred me for another mri (last one at diagnosis had no lesions but lumbar puncture showed increased protein) as they feel I need to be checked for ms as well as these symptoms are not consistent with pd. I also have a parent and grandparent with MS.
Has anyone else had a dual diagnosis? If so, what is your life like? I am feeling deflated, though I am hopeful that if I get out on the correct pathway I can turn things around.
