Have just had a visit to the consultant. The hands cramping into odd shapes is not Parkinson’s. The loss of feeling in my legs is not parkinson’s ( I have watched in fascination as a fly crawled over my feet and legs and I could not feel it. )
So what is Parkinson’s.
I said that I seem to need more Sinemet , or nearer together when I was more active. Ah that is more like Parkinson’s.
Have had a lot of thinking to do. Some days are good Some parts of some days are good. I don’t know why
At this moment I have a kind of pins and needles feeling on my left kneck , face eye. Do I take this as a sign that I should rest ?
After nagging by my family and doctor I went to a specialist Physio. She told me I was doing fine. just try to stand on my toes then my heels a few times a day. I didn’t mention that I follow John Pepper.
She did the push tests. Scored full marks in all but the one where you have to walk through a narrow space while concentrating on an object beyond the space while she was talking to me. That was the one where my conscious thought went somewhere.
Everything I do seems to rely on conscious thought Although sometimes I find that I have walked some yards without thinking about it
Being in the house is very difficult All that turning, adjusting etc
I just so need to understand
