You have these same experiences? I'm not sure if my sense of smell has changed? Sometimes I think I don't taste things as well as before, but not sure. If there are changes, they are subtle. I'm not sure what to do next. I should see a Movement Disorder Specialist, but I'm nervous about not having clear enough symptoms that I won't be taken seriously still. I know something is not right, and I feel very odd, and clumsy, and my hand is not cooperating as normal, but maybe it is not noticeable on the outside? I feel more anxiety when I feel like they don't really listen to my concerns. But I don't think I've seen the right Dr. yet.
These were my complaints: now most of them are resolving (non-PD medication appears to have caused most of the issues):
undiagnosed; seeking some understanding.
consistent/constant off-balance/mild vertigo experiences; uncoordinated.
decreased left hand dexterity and coordination (lumbrical weakness).
mild cognitive issues.

Our symptoms are nearly identical. I notice my symptoms alot (hands, gait, general coordination). My movement disorder doc (who I've been seeing for almost a year) can barely detect them and has not given me a definite diagnosis. My sense of smell declined ahead of my motor symptoms. I recommend a movement disorder specialist. He'll probably want a DATscan. Good luck!
