Dickeybird's Story

Hello. I was diagnosed with PD about 7 years ago. I was 55 at the time. I saw a specialist and he could not find anything wrong with me so I went to Exeter and got a second opinion and the man I saw said I had some sort of disease. I never thought of Parkinson's.


I went to see a GP at my surgery and he diagnosed me with Parkinson's disease. I was upset but the next time I saw this GP he told me he also thought I may have motor neurone disease. I was then very grateful that I had PD which was better than the latter.
