Is it Parkinson???

YoungPark posted:
Hello guys. I'm new at this. I have been recently diagnosed with PD by two neurologists. I am thinking that neurological disorders have so much in common. So I am wondering. Is there a distinct simptom that can confirm it is really PD? Because I'm barely in my late 20's and I really need to know what I am fighting against. Thank you

Dear YoungPark,
I would suggest talking to your neurologist about a DaTSCAN and, given your age blood testing for LRRK2, parkin and other similar blood tests.
