My dear friends;
My new neurologist again, for the second time, told me I do not have PD.
I had taken my last dose of Sinemet 4 h ago.
What is going on with me is that I have high anxiety, possibly PTSD.
I thought so before diagnosis with PD.
I wake up in the morning, feeling fine.
1/2 h out of bed, the anxiety sets in. My heart starts beating fast, and my vision gets blurry. Then I get dizzy and start stumbling around.
The combination of high anxiety, irregular heartbeat, very low blood pressure has given me symptoms close to PD.
But I don't shake, I don't have stiff muscles, nor any of the other symptoms peculiar to PD. Some of the symptoms I had, I think I had because I thought I had PD.
The neurologist wants to get me off Sinemet, in small doses.
Right now when I feel a panic attack coming, I take 1/2 beta blocker pill, and I am good.
I will be checking in to see how you are all doing.
You are all mighty warriors!! Keep up the good fight I have learned a lot about courage from you!!
Much love from Eva G.
