If I have all the signs of parkinsons then why the test?

Last Wed. Nov 14, 2007 I had a doc. appontment. At that visit he informed me that I have all the signs of Parkinson's Disease. He is setting me up an app. with a neurologist.
Now what do I do? I've read some of the things on the net about Parkinsons, but they all, basicly, say the same thing. If I have all the signs of parkinsons then why the test?

Should I be scared? Question

You Should Be Scared
Parkinsons should be treated by a movment disorders neurologist. Only someone with that speciality can help through the various stages of this life altering disease. I have had early onset of PD for 19 years.
