Saad, You are aware that some of your symptoms can be from other causes. The rigidity in your back that prevents you from picking things up from the floor could be problems with your spine. Have you been examined by an Orthopedic Spine Surgeon or Neurosurgeon who specializes in the spine. First they'll tell you to stop bending over. Your bending problem is more indicative of a back problem. As someone who has major back issues, I highly recommend you get yourself examined to insure you're not doing permanent damage to yourself. You really need to schedule appointments with the appropriate specialists that can help you sort everything out. You do have some symptoms of early PD, but these same symptoms can be from other causes. Have you had any other tests done besides the blood test that diagnosed your hyperthyroidism? You need to have an MRI of the brain to rule out other issues such as MS, MRI or CT Scan of the spine and EMG/NCS to rule out spine issues. You seem to want to package every problem you have and blame it on PD.
I'm still new to the world of PD, but throwing out doom and gloom statements such as "Please tell me guys that there is a life after PD because I personally can't see it."
doesn't do any good for the people on this forum who have been dealing with Parkinson's for years and have a diagnosis. Like I said, I'm still new to this world, but I see myself living a fulfilling life along side PD.
