Hi Babs,

Hi Raz
I think that they use scans to rule things out as much as find things.
For example I was having light headedness, blurred vision,headaches etc. All could have been signs of a tumour.
Once the scan had ruled that out they could look elsewhere.

Hi hubby

Yes I see what you mean, I have I think a small balance problem they have referred me to see someone for that too. It’s like all off a Sunday I have stepped of a fast rollercoaster. I see what you mean about the vision and ready as I am sure the there is something more than PD. Thank you for your support and I will be in touch to let you know how it goes with them all.x

For the last few weeks my eyes are constantly closing and everyone thinks I’m sleeping. Have been.told this is part of PD.
So many things relate to PD apart from falling most days and falling asleep holding my coffee this is the next worst thing., but now im thinking I also really hate when my mouth starts to tremor and no one knows what I’m saying. I find this really embarrassing and especially when people look sorry For me.

I really really hate this B… PD. Sorry for rambling on but that’s exactly how I feel most days.

You usually find I’m not saying always but it’s the ones who only maybe just have a slight tremor that day oh we just have to get on with it and all the positive messages they give I actually don’t know why I’m saying this and don’t know if anyone will agree I find it irrating at this time.

Hi Babs

Well your not alone, I am feeling the hate for PD really bad right now, just like you falling asleep, is my big thing, with the eyes that look like they are asleep. but to top that for the past week I have started dulling and that’s even when I am not a sleep, has anyone else gone or expericed this? I had my Hosptail
Appointment last week when I mentioned about this he said this is to do PD y you . Mfmñh

Hi Babs.
I’m with you 1oo%.
I hate my condition.
I hate it most when I know I am being condescended to by someone who should know better.
If I am not fighting though what do I do?
Stay in bed all day?
Maybe it will come to that eventually but at the moment I still have things that I enjoy.
Hating it makes me want to fight it.

Hi Babs & all

I fall a sleep the when I posted this and just have seen that I had not finished what I wanted to ask you all. Well like I was saying I had my Hosptail appointment and in that they doctor has asked for a brain scan, and he has referred me to look at my balance, which thanks to Macl I understand the reason why, but another two things i had blood tests done in they have come back and highlighted that my iron levels are low. So I thought ok may be, but when he told me what they where I was :scream:. He went on to explain I should have levels above 50 and my levels are 5. Yes just a 5​:scream: how can this happen and could this mean I have another illness on top too??? Please if anyone could shed some light on this I would be most greatful

Kind regards Raz

Hi all

Well a up date and just need to tell someone really, today I thought it would be good to try to do a clear coat of nail poshi but I have fallen asleep and split half the bottle on my skirt😔. I have also noticed I can’t reply back on here as fast as i could a few weeks back, so I think this is my PD freighting to win😞. I feel so bad and on top I am finding it so hard to keep signing in on this site as I keep forgetting my passwords or even how to cope and past😢feelling very low.

Thanks Raz
