Bitter Lemon


#1

Hi Guys - recently diagnosed in April '15 and have noticed (please don't laugh) that I appear to have almost become addicted to drinking (and craving, when I'm not drinking it!) bitter lemon drink; I've also had a few dreams lately of actually swimming in a lake of the green stuff too - has anyone else experienced this odd dietary scenario, linked to PD?

Hi.

You don't say if you are on any medication?  Dopamine Agonists can cause obsessive behaviour which can include eating.

Hi Charliefox

You think an addiction to drinking Bitter Lemon is weird ?

Since contracting Parkinson`s I`ve become addicted to drinking Brake Fluid.

It`s not a problem though - I can stop any time I like  lol

LOL - even in my very worst Bitter Lemon moments, I'd never stoop that low Stevie:-)

Hi Jacko - better start worrying when you're on the handbrake turns:-)

Hi Libra Lady - I think your guess here is probably correct; at least you didn't make a joke about it! x

Hi C Cat - the pork pie issue sounds worse than bitter lemon drink problem to me, but thanks for sharing anyway!

Yep when you start eating them for brekys and crave them all day not good!

It seemed to dampen the nausea the Requip xl caused though ?
