I was diagnosed with pd Jan 2015. As far as motor symptoms I experience left arm/hand tremor, left foot dystonia, arm/shoulder pain & stiffness, some imbalance. Currently taking rasagiline & Rytary.
Now and before my diagnosis I’ve experienced a feeling of nervousness, like having too much caffeine (which I have stopped using). This is what bothers me the most because it gets worse in stressful situations which increases my tremor and effects my concentration and word finding ability. My doctors tell me it’s anxiety but I think it’s more than that. I work in a very busy, noisy environment which I find intolerable at times. Unfortunately I can’t change that right now.
I’ve read this is a symptom of pd but don’t find too much information about it and how to manage it. Anyone care to share their experience &/or advice about this?
I am still able to work 5 days a week as RN. My job is fast paced with lots of walking
