Question ALS or Parkinson's Disease?

It is possible for someone to be diagnosed with PD instead of ALS? I have the PD symptoms, but also have some other symptoms that fall under the ALS illness. These other symptoms are: left hand wrist pain, hip, lower back, and knee pain, droolings, swallowing problems and talking.

Should I be concerned and have my Doctor run more tests?
