Alij - my tremor - it is more of a violent shake is my left side but when I sit or lie down it seems to transfer to the right side. Hence my insomnia. My balance is shot to pieces, I lean forward when trying to walk & lean to the right when sitting/lyinng. The constipation is horrible as is the back ache. I do not think I suffer from depression but I am seriously bad tempered. Keep your spirits up

ps I do not use a stick as I feel they are too flimsy. I grab hold of the nearest piece of furniture. My door jambs are covered in finger marks. And I do worry about pulling the sink away from the wall.

Hi anne, i can relate to what ur saying, ive become really bad tempered lately. Dont know if ive got constipation tho, altho i seem to go 4 or 5 days before i go. My balance is shot to pieces, i cant go out without my crutches now.

mine are very much the same although i have loss of balance and tremours to the right side of my body..constipation is a real pain with crohns..i can never remember if i have taken my daily meds for my other health issues.

hate drooling at the left side of my mouth..although not all the time.
yes moods are big with me..always shouting at hubbie and get v.tearfull everyday.

feel like i have turned into the hulk if you know what i mean.

take care i understand..i walk with permanant crutches now..been useing them for 12 yrs.

also got myself a scooter to get to the shops.

your symptoms makes me feel that i am making a lot of fuss about nothing, relatively speaking. :flushed:

saw a video of someone with advanced dyskinesia and it scared the ******* out of me! am going to avoid levodopa for as long as possible or until they can stop that side-effect.
