Ongoing Headaches: I understand your distress. “get headaches all the time’ is not a typical sign of Parkinson’s I understand your concern “drop stuff sometimes” is also not a typical sign of Parkinson’s. It can be due to Anxiety caused by stresses in your life. See a Neurologist for severe headache and discuss your concerns.

Sort it out: Your description is not consistent with classic Parkinson's disease. Headaches, and dropping objects could be due to numerous causes. Agree your best way to sort out is a visit to a neurologist.
