I find that aside from the major problems we all know about are many little quirks that can or don't apply to everyone...here are some of my finds...which I have looked up for verification when possible:
( if you recognize yourself I am gonna feel so much better)
1) I am extremely warm most of the time....and when I go outside do not seem to feel the effects of hot and cold weather normally...
2) I was not much of a "sweater"...but since PD I have a lot of perspiring
3) read info on some of the meds that says it can cause discoloration of the urine which can stain underwear (thanks for that info, was worried alittle)
4) I have invisible creatures that crawl on my hands or arm (just that tiny little flex of the nerves)
5) I am the original pinball machine ball in the am B4 meds...touch all the walls in the hallway...LOL
6) I have had some problems that lead my neurologist to think I could B developing carpel tunnel...( could also just be the PD; as I am a "lefty" and I have it mainly on my left side) but crocheting daily is one of the things that I think keeps me connected...at rest my arm can do alot of jerks...but crocheting its a champ. won't consider giving it up..until I have too...also a great creative outlet ( won 'best of class 'and first place in granny sq.afgan class @ the local fall fair this year)
7) for whatever reason seem to have this overwhelming desire whenever we travel very far to sleep...invested in a neck pillow for that reason...my seat is on auto-pilot for reclining. ( when I started Nuvigil for sleep apnea symptoms I was able to be awake for alot more of our trips periodically to my husbands VA hospital 120 miles away...but am currently off it due to the donut hole in insurance) My hubby refers to it as my "speed" as he thinks it makes that dramatic a difference in my activity level. i admit I am able to get thru the day with usually only one nap on it...B4 I was napping 3 hours after getting up, and again in the afternoon...and sometimes early evening. Neurologist said now that some of us have been on CPAP for awhile they are able to get some feedback and discovered our bodies do not automatically forget how tired they have been from lack of recuperative REM sleep...and in the case of PD where I still do not get REM sleep often my body still is tired.
The CPAP is a blessing for me as it has stopped my restless leg symptoms so far...have quit using my Ropininole daily; altho I have some on hand just in case.
