    I might be!
    My OH started to stoop and shuffle a little in Dec. He collapsed on Christmas day went into hospital. Was treated for an infection and been off his legs for 6weeks, He's still in hospital starting his 7th week. He has been referred for a neurology appointment for suspected Parkinson's but I was told today there is a severe backlog so could be a couple of months before he gets one.
    He has managed to walk 4 days out of the last 7 with support and is having physio every day but it's pretty obvious he will never walk the 3 - 5 miles a day he was doing.

    So sorry Vanessa. You seem to have another problem now. If it is Parkinsons there is medication that will help the symptoms. You need to get the diagnosis before you worry too much. Maybe its not Parkinsons. 2nd April seems a long way off. I hope you will cope ok until then. Take care.x
