Is it usual in Parkinson's that aside from the obvious symptoms PwP have days/hours where they look pale and ill and actually feel quite ill?
Could it be a pre-medication thing, typical even on medication or something else entirely?
Basically what I'm asking is do you regularly feel and look unwell?
Hi Rebekah8 Ive been diagnosed for 12 years now and I often have days when I feel unwell and I am unable to put my finger on any direct proble and my husband often tells me I'm looking quite pale. Sometimes on these occasions if I check my blood pressure it's quite low but I also think that the symptoms of this condition can really get people down and it is those days that present unidentifiable symptoms. I can only say this from my personal experiences of course others may totally disagree.
I often have days when I get up feeling 'Ill', but no definite symptoms, and sometimes feel so lethargic, that I feel this might be my last day. I crave for a bit of 'get up and go'.The day usually gets better and then I am mad at myself for wasting time.There are some days however (not many) when I get up feeling quite good.
Hello yes I often feel ill but not sure whether I m in the minority. Have spoken to several people at our local group who don t feel like this.My answer is to go out in the fresh air if possible and walk for a while. Doesn t always work but no side effects. Also have times when I feel quite good. Not related to timing of meds maybe just dopamine levels.
I am still learning to drive this condition but my impression is that almost anything can and is attributed to Mr P. Don't rule out a visit to your local GP.
Thanks guys for your replies, they're really helpful. Tuesday is D-Day for me. Found out today that one of my nan's sisters had PD, also her other sister's daughter and she had lewy-body dementia...is this a genetic link or too remote?
