Another diagnosis… another day!

On Monday 26 November, I had to go to hospital for tests. After being examined by two doctors, controlled tests, and electrodes fitted to my muscles, I have been diagnosed with the early stages of elderly Parkinson’s Disease. I also have a secondary condition to this illness called Parkinsonian Syndrome, which is a condition that doesn’t usually affect people until on their mid 60s!

I have been put on a medication called Mirapixen, and this drug is taken once a day to help stop the tremor and muscle spasms that I have been having within the past few months… well keep it under control anyway – but they make me feel very tired, so I shall be taking it later than the time given to me on the instructions.

My name is Daryl and I was born in October 1965. I was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's Disease in June 2011, and I was put on medication, which I believe is helping keep the worst of the condition at bay. In November 2012 I was also diagnosed with the first stages of Parkinson's Disease and I am now two lots of medication for this illness as well. I live in a secure bungalow in an elderly complex in my hometown of Sutton-in-Ashfield and I have support from the social services and a support worker who visits six hours per week to help me live my life as independently as possible. Visit me on my Facebook page... I love life now, and the people in it - so show your support for me and the organisations that support dementia and Parkinson's disease - let's make this small world of ours a much more pleasant place to live in by caring for those that need that little bit more help in life!
