Hi Sheffy and all.....I can imagine what your GP was thinking Sheffy!!!! we certainly had some laughs when i was wearing mine. Hope you had a great time in Scotland, i have never been though Mr Dolly was born in Edinburgh and left there when he was a baby, he has been back and says the scenery especially in the Highlands is breathtaking. What area did you visit?
THE PKG MONITOR RESULT
I saw my Consultant today for the result of the monitor, and she was very pleased with the result and says i am managing the PD well. She showed me the print out of the graph showing the 6 days that i was wearing it, and it showed a steady rate, no serious wearing off as i had imagined was happening. I had been feeling pretty rough since Feb on and off and felt sure it was down to the Parkinsons. I have thought for a long time that i suffer with Hypoglycemia and every so often i suddenly feel weak, faint, sweaty, hungry and spacey, i had a blood test 2 weeks ago and my Gp has asked me to go back to discuss the results. the consultant also asked me id i have ever had migrains....well for 30 years i suffered terrible ones every 2 weeks and she said that often Migrainous people have a tendency to react badly to noise,light, smells and certain foods. My weakness is as you know Sheffy is sugar! in any shape or form, chocs, cake, biscuits etc. So of course my own common sense should have told me that it wasn't doing me any good. She said that the pain and stiffness i get especially in the mornings is due to the Parky but not all the symptoms i have been experiencing are. I guess we do tend to put everything we feel under one heading ....BLAME IT ON THE PARKINSONS as the song goes, but it seems that is not always the case. So to help me in the mornings she has given me a little extra Madopar in a dispersible tablet and then carry on with my usual meds taking them every 3 hours throughout the day. I am to try that for a month and to cut down considerably on my sugar intake and see how things go.
I am off to Shropshire this week for our Grandboys 21st Birthday and i am seeing my GP to discuss the blood test results as soon as i get back, but meanwhile.......ECLAIRS, TRIFLES, CAKES, BISCUITS, CHOCS, SWEETS.........tata!! ......maybe i will lose a bit of weight tooooooo.....well it is now 10.45pm and i am so fancying something nice !!! so i had better go to bed and try and forget about it.
So night night
luv Dolly x
