Feedback please - Parkinson's Symptoms?

I am a 24 year old male who has been having a very tough time recently.

Recently I have been extremely fatigued even when i get 8 hours of sleep, have occasional burning sensation/cold/shooting pain on both of my knees/top of thighs at same spot and other parts of leg especially when clothes are touching them. My legs have also been weak and I get muscle twitches around my eyes, arms, and legs. I have also felt very foggy. I have recently noticed my hands are constantly shaking such as when I pick up a pen, or my head feels like it slightly moves back and forth when lying down.

I went to a neuro and he isn't sure whats going on. I passed the quick neuro exam, had a clear MRI and a normal EMG. Does this sound like early onset of parkinsons?

Any opinions/feedback would be very helpful.

Re: Feedback please - Parkinson's Symptoms?

Parkinson's usually starts on one side not both. You might consider seeing a "movement disorder specialist," which is a neurologist with even more training.
