Sorry for the late reply , not been online much over festive season .
I have not found any difference between my sleep pattern and symptoms , same if I have a few beers . I can have a bad nights sleep and go for a few beers and walk ok some days . Then the next day I can be struggling after a few beers .
That is when I get advice like ........ you should not drink .......etc .
Yes Kate , agree that with an open space like a field I can walk across, but in the house or a shop it does not matter when either the door is open or closed , I can struggle regardless . That is what confuses others ( and it used to confuse me in the early days ) when they see me 'normal' one minute , then the next minute stuck and unable to move .
Distraction is difficult to control , I start to think about when my next does of meds are due and my legs remind me . That makes me worse .
I have a running / walking machine and when I am struggling I go on that , I can walk ok . Stairs no problem , tried counting and taking big steps but only works for me sometimes . I have had numerous falls but apart from bruising nothing serious so far .
Strange , ....... is all I can say .
Good saying Supa , Keep upright everybody ......
