    Concerned I may have non-movement PD

    Hello everyone - new here under this email. Was a member several years ago under my old email address.

    I currently have the diagnosis of fibromyalgia, hypothyroid, non arteric optic neuropathy, interstitial cystitis, ortho arthritis, tinnitus, and the worse is restless legs. Had a mild heart attack 4 monts ago and have mostly recovered but do have some blockage and partial blockage of carotid arteries. So with the various symptoms that goes along with those issues it is hard to know which goes with what. But these are what symptoms I think might indicate PD. I would appreciate if you can relate to any of these.

    Movements: I do not have twitching or tremors but I do find myself shaking my right hand when it is just hanging by my side and when I realize it I stop it. When I hold my phone in my right hand looking down at it itís not unusual for my hand to shake uncontrollablely.

    Non movement:
    I experience extreme depression and anxiety and on Lexipro.
    I have had restless legs for years and take mirapex - sometimes it work but sometimes it doesnít especially if my ferritin or thyroid is low.
    I now speak very soft and my husband often has to ask me to speak up. But I still have expression and show emotion.
    I am easily distracted.
    I can no longer multi task and I am much slower at completing ordinary tasks. I have to urinate often.
    I have become more of an impulsive person now and have become obsessed with crafts though I have lost coordination in my hands
    Sometime I garble my words or my tongue canít form the words I want to form and I often canít remember the correct word. I canít seem to cook as I once did.
    I donít have patience as I once did
    I lose my balance easy and cannot walk straight. I also have become very clumsy and knock things over often.

    A lot of these I wouldnít have thought of as being related but I read an article on the Michael J Fox website and I couldnít believe all the things I could relate to so now I am really wondering

    Also I had a CT scan of my brain when I had my heart attack and it showed I had a reduction in global brain mass but no brain lesions. My brain MRI 2 years ago there no issues with the mass and this was used to compare to the CT.

    Sorry this is long and if you can respond thank for that.
