Hi, new to the forum and Parkinson's

Hi all, John here. I've recently been diagnosed with PD, and Fibromyalgia. Been suffering the Parkinson's for almost 2 yrs now. I just wanted to introduce myself, as I get ready for this crazy ride. I'm sure I'll have questions, and I hope I can help out others with symptoms that I've experienced myself so far..

So,..... Hi :-)

I'm a 29 male who weight lifts 4 times a week. Over the past year, I have been experiencing symptoms which seems to excerbate during times of increased heart rate (happy, anxious, post-exercise and etc...).Examples: 1) Bodywide twitching - Single fire pop like muscle twitch, rapid irregular pop like twitch when at rest. 2) Right heel plantar fasciistis 3) Painful bone at lower right butt - it flares up when i sit down for too long. improves with movement. manageable pain. I feel it if i flex my right but or when i run as well. 4) Right Top of the shoulder bone pain - improves with movement. if i were to let it rest, i will get this dull aching pain when i flex it forward. 5) Fast single twitch - both right fingers and left fingers 6) Rhymthmic pop twitch of the right forearm that moves my right index finger up and down which is my PRIMARY concern - It happens after action (pick up a mug, pull ups, opening a refrigerator, moving my arms, walking) and at rest. it feels like a pop in my right forearm at a rate of 1.5 -2hz (for 30sec to a min) which makes my right index finger goes, up and down, rest for a millisec, then goes up and then down. When this happens, i can make it happen again (most of the time) by flexing my arm, clinching my hand into fist or stretching my right arm. it first manifested when i was walking back to my office after gym 1 year ago. 7) Irregular rhythm right forearm muscle popping twitch - if i were to rest my arm in an uncomfortable manner (resting my arm off the arm rest of my chair so that my arm is dangling, or twisting my arm while resting in an uncomfortbale manner), my right thumb and fore finger will tingle, pins and needle sensation and then my forearm will have this popping irregular twitch. It will go away if I remove my right arm from that position I visited 3 neuros (2 of them are Movement disorder specialist) who ran bloodworks, MRI and neuro physcial test said that i am fine. Am very worried of parkinson's, als, MS and etc…
