Hi this is my first post on this site so bare with me please.
I am 41 years old and i have been diagnosed with pd for about 1 year now. I am still suffering quite a lot with this as i seem to have a different pd to the normal people. I have been tried on a number of different meds incl requip, sinemet and now stalevo all without great success.But my new meds do make me feel nausea all day, I have a tremor im very slow in getting around im unsteady and probably look like im drunk (if only that was the case). I dribble and my speech is not great. I have just finished an LSVT course which was good but hasnt improved my speech as much as i would of liked. I am married with three daughters under the age of 5. I dont work at the moment but luckily my wife does. Im told i should get some rest during the day which to be honest is impossible what with looking after the kids.
I also have cervical dystonia which basically means my head tilts to one side because my neck muscles go into spasm and it gets worse when im stressed or feel tense which is quite alot. I have had this for 3 1/2 years. These last couple of weeks ive had to stop driving because instead of looking out the front window my head seems to want to look out the left or if i was an owl even further around. This is usually improved by botox injections into the neck but for some reason its worn off earlier than normal. As you can imagine i am feeling pretty low at the moment and have just had enough of feeling like this. I know im not dying but i just want something to get better.
