Hi my MPN family,
It's been a long time since I last posted but so much has been happening. Firstly, my 93 year old mum, who lived with us, had a stroke. It was a little touch and go but she came through. She had to go into respite care for 6 weeks but she decided she liked the home so much that she wanted to stay. During this time my hubby also had to go into hospital for a gall bladder operation. Between running between the hospital and the home, plus looking after the house and the dogs I must admit I was knackered.
Things have now settled thank goodness. I had been a carer for my parents for over 30 years so it was quite a wrench for me, I actually felt I had lost a child.
I missed the Newcastle forum but this was way out of my control.
What I want to ask is does anybody, as part of this condition, suffer from any neurological problems. I have suddenly started to have uncontrolled movement in my hands and fingers. For example I cannot hold my hand over my computer pad without it suddenly jerking and my finger jabbing the keyboard. While doing the housework today I also had real problems lifting anything with my left hand. I was trying to dust under my perfume bottles and it was like a game of skittles every time I lifted a bottle up. I must admit I am getting a bit worried with my symptoms and I would love to hear from anybody else who has these spasms.
Thanking everyone again xx
