I would love to know what everybodys attitudes are towards alcohol. Personally I love a few beers but not had a drink for nearly 3 months. I was newly diagnosed a month ago but the months leading up to my diagnosis I had some really bad experiences whilst drinking alcohol or I should say after drinking it. It was mainly that I simply could not sleep at all leading me to be awake for most of the night. The last time I did have a drink I felt i was having an outer body experience, could hardly walk and just felt generally bad. In affect it was making what I now know to be my Parkinson’s symptoms 10 times worse. I haven’t touched alcohol since. A friend of a friend who has Parkinson’s did say red wine is our medicine!
would love to know if fellow-sufferers have had adverse effects to alcohol and what their general opinon is towards drinking with Parkinson’s
