Just a thought, I wondered has anyone else had back problems or suffered from Bells Palsy before dx with pd?
I suffered from a slipped disc in my lower back over 15 years ago and was unable to move for at least six weeks. Also i had Bells Palsy around the same time and lost the use of left side of my face. The feeling came back eventually but i have been left with a slight droopy eye lid.
I was dx with pd 2 years ago and am the first member in my family to be diagnosed.I`m sure i`ve read of a connection with lower back injuries & pd, not sure about bell`s palsy! It may not be connected but thought it would be an interesting discussion!
