Food


#1
Hi all,just asking you how ur body reacts to food,I'm finding that when I'm Hungary my condition gets far worse then after I've eaten it calms down again I'm finding this is happening more &more,it's really weird,this happens mainly at tea time in the evening and not at lunch time,I'm wondering if it's my drug waring off but I'm on requip xl 16mg's and it's suppose to last all day,I'm also on anzlect 1 mg I've had p diddy 3yrs now and I'm 48,let me know how u get with food if u wish,all the best k :---))

Hello, Kev --
Just one more voice to say yes, I share this trait regarding food. In fact, late afternoon, when my energy is dropping, is almost the only time (other than when the weather is really cold) that my tremor is strong.

Hi. I completely agree about the need for food. It seems that when the energy level slumps, the symptoms worsen. I'm not on meds yet, so what I do is eat a plate of broad (fava) beans around 6pm. This normally does the trick. They appear to boost my brain function. Luckily I love them!
