Almost all symptoms you described I had for many years before my initial diagnosis started in my 20’s but wasn’t diagnosed till 2 or 3 years ago can’t remember which..god memory sucks ..but certainly wish u the best with diagnosis
You may want to see a Movement Specialist who is a neurologist specializing in PD.

My husband was diagnosed with essential tremors 3 yrs before being diagnosed with PD. He had a lot more symptoms by then but we hadn`t realised it was due to PD. My husband didn`t tell the Dr as he thought they were separate issues! When they are all put together I can see now they were part of the PD!
It took many different doctor visits before my husband was diagnosed and we had to travel hours from home to get answers from movement disorder specialists that could provide them. Please consider traveling as far as necessary it was so worth it for us!
